GREENSBORO, N.C. – UNCG sophomore golfer Fanny Cnops (Gent, Belgium/K.A. Voskenslaan) has been named this week's Blue Chip Performer sponsored by Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Carolina. The Blue Chip Performer is chosen weekly from all sports in season and runs throughout the 2012-13 UNCG athletics campaign.

Cnops posted her first tournament victory of the season and the third of her career over the weekend, claiming the UNCW Seahawk Classic title at the River Landing Course in Wallace, N.C. Her play helped the Spartans finish in third place as a team in the 54-hole event, which was the final tune-up for the 2013 Southern Conference Championships.

Cnops won the tournament as she fired a 2-over par 218 (74-72-720) to win the event by two strokes over Old Dominion's Elizabeth Haycock (4-over par). She held the lead after the first 36 holes Saturday and clinched the victory with her second straight even-par 72 round Sunday. Her scores of 72 were the second-lowest of the entire weekend

Cnops' title is her first of the season and marks her sixth top-20 finish of the season. In fact, she has finished in the top 25 of all eight tournaments she has participated in this year, after winning SoCon Golfer and Freshman of the Year honors last season. This weekend's title marked her third win of her career after winning back-to-back events last year in the Palmetto Intercollegiate and the Kiawah Island Intercollegiate

Cnops and the Spartans will be off until the 2013 SoCon Championships April 14-16 held at the Moss Creek Country Club in Hilton Head, S.C.
