Big Ten Golfer of the Week:
Gia Fanelli, Penn State
Jr. - West Palm Beach, Fla. - Cardinal Newman
Gia Fanelli collects her first Big Ten Golfer of the Week honor after earning a top-five finish at the Canes and Cardinal Classic in Miami, Fla., last week. The Nittany Lion junior improved in the final round, finishing the tournament in a tie for fourth place after firing her best round of the season in the first round with a score of 73. Her fourth-place finish matched her career-best finish, which was at the Bucknell Invitational last season. Fanelli finished with a card of 226 (73-79-74) for a +10 in leading the Nittany Lions to an eighth-place finish (944) at the event.
