Sealy gets Conference USA honour
Top Trinidad and Tobago female golfer Monifa Sealy copped the Conference USA Women's Golfer of the Week honour, on Wednesday.
The University of Central Florida (UCF) sophomore gained the recognition after a top-ten finish at the Las Vegas Collegiate Showdown. She helped the UCF Knights to a second-place team finish against a field that featured six ranked teams.
Her UCF teammate, junior Greg Eason, was named Conference USA Men's Golfer of the Week after tying for sixth place at the Isleworth Collegiate Invitational which featured five top-ten teams, 13 ranked teams and 23 individually ranked golfers.
Sealy, who hails from Glencoe, finished in a tie for ninth place in Las Vegas, at the Stallion Mountain Golf Club. She helped the Knights to a runner-up finish as she shot one-under for the final two rounds of the tournament. Sealy paced UCF to its best finish of the fall and recorded her best result of the season to date.
According to the UCF website, Sealy was extremely consistent during the final two rounds, carding three birdies and just two bogeys. This is Sealy's first ever Golfer of the Week honour.
