Congratulations are in order for South Ripley class of 2010 graduate Lakin Davis who currently attends the University of St. Francis as a freshman on a golf scholarship.
Her expertise demonstrated through high school warranted attention from the college level, where she has proven to be an asset to the University of St. Francis Lady Cougar golf team.
Recently, during the 2011 Heidelberg Spring Classic Golf Invitational, held near Tiffin, Ohio, Davis played her game to earn the top spot, capturing the "Medalist" honor.
The Invitational Meet was held at the 72 Par, Mohawk Golf Course and Country Club, which has a yardage of 5800.
Freshman Davis played to a 12th place tie in first day competition, followed by an excellent second day score of 75, shot in the rain, to become Meet Medalist with a total tournament score of 159. Her score bested the closest competitor of the 36 member tournament field by three strokes.
Davis' effort setting the mark at 75 was her best recorded to date at the college level, earning her All-Tournament Team recognition as well. She did however post a 77 last fall.
As a team, the Lady Cougars finished in second place with a score of 672. First place among the eight colleges represented was captured by Bethel with a final tally of 651.
St. Francis individual scoring included:
Lakin Davis 84+75=159
Katie Jones 84+86=170
Brittney Kyler 93+83=176
Abby Lauck 84+93=177
Darcy Allman 83+98=181
Congratulations Lakin!
