Kamelgarn wins fifth OVC weekly award this season

April 13, 2012 —     Morehead State junior Marisa Kamelgarn has been named the Adidas Ohio Valley Conference Women’s Golfer of the Week after finishing second out of 75 players at the Eastern Kentucky Lady Colonel Classic.

    “Congratulations to Marisa on another well-deserved honor,” Morehead State Head Coach Stephanie Barker said. “Marisa is a very strong player who brings a lot to the table for us. She has matured, as both a person and player, in her three years at MSU.”

    Kamelgarn, a native of Mahopac, N.Y., shot an eight-over-par 224 (76-76-72) at the Arlington Golf Club in Richmond to help the Eagles finish second out of 13 teams.

    “Marisa is really starting to think about her shots,” Barker said. “Her course strategy has improved, her ball striking has gotten better and her short game is as good as it’s ever been at MSU.”

    Kamelgarn has earned the accolade three times in the past five weeks, on five occasions this school year and nine times in her career.

    The performance at EKU marked Kamelgarn’s fourth top-five finish of the year. She currently leads the conference in stroke average (74.6).

    “Marisa has proven to be one of the top women’s golfers in the OVC,” Barker added. “We are looking forward to seeing how she finishes up this junior year.”

    The Eagles return to action April 22-24 at the OVC Championship in Dickson, Tenn.
