SPARTANBURG, S.C. – UNCG freshman golfer Fanny Cnops has been named Southern Conference Women's Golf Athlete of the Month for February, the conference office recently announced.
Cnops was honored after firing a final round 71 on her way to a one-stroke victory in the Edwin Watts/Kiawah Island Intercollegiate at Oak Point. Cnops' effort helped the Spartans finish second in the 33-team tournament. Cnops finished her three rounds of play at 2-under par 214 (72-71-71), edging Augusta State's Christine Duschek-Hansen by one stroke.
It was the second career victory for Cnops, and her second straight win dating back to the fall season. Cnops also won the Palmetto Intercollegiate, which was also played at Oak Point, last October.
Cnops currently leads the SoCon with a 71.95 stroke average.
