Junior Lauren Smith (Salisbury, N.C./UNCG) earned Southern Conference Women’s Golfer of the Week honors, the league office announced on Wednesday afternoon. She helped Appalachian State University

women’s golf to a third-place finish at the Morehead State Ocala Spring Invitational. Smith carded a 69-76-71=216 (E) to take home third place at the event and lead the Mountaineers to a solid showing at the tournament.
The redshirt junior’s opening round 69 (-3) was a career best and tied the ASU program single round record. Her low scores also aided the team to shoot a pair of 293 (+5) rounds, setting a new program 18-hole mark. Smith ranks third on the squad with a 78.16 stroke average. She took home the tournament title at the Winthrop invitational last October and joins teammate Yue Xu as a conference honoree, as the classmate earned Golfer of the Week honors in March 2011.
Smith and the Apps return to action on March 25-26 to defend their title at the Low Country Intercollegiate at Hilton Head’s Moss Creek Plantation.
