Junior Meagan Bradford named OVC Golfer of the Week

COOKEVILLE, Tenn. - With less than a month before the OVC Golf Championship, junior Meagan Bradford took home an early honor.

With her third place finish at the Larry Nelson Collegiate Invitational she has been named Co-OVC Golfer of the Week. She shares the honor with Portia Abbott from Jacksonville State.

"She played well this weekend," said coach Brandy Stout. "There were a lot of good golfers at Kennesaw and she just elevated her game to stay ahead of them."

Bradford showed a strong performance at the Larry Nelson Collegiate Invitational finishing third after rounds of 79, 75 and 74 (+12). She shot two-over in the final round. Bradford is Tech’s top golfer this season with a 76.8 average and almost a 2.5 stroke lead over the next member of the Golden Eagle roster. TTU was fourth overall as a team.

Tech took fourth of nine teams at the Larry Nelson Invitational last week. The Golden Eagles will be back in action at the EKU Spring Invitational in Richmond on April 11-12.
