Austin Peay Sports Information
Brentwood, TN – Austin Peay State University senior Jessica Cathey, who captured her career’s first medalist honor after shooting a two-round 145 in leading the Lady Govs to the 2015 F&M Bank APSU Intercollegiate, has been named the adidas® Ohio Valley Conference Women’s Golfer of the Week.
That was announced Wednesday by the league office.
Cathey became only the second Lady Gov—joining Staci Lynch (2006), who was honored at the tourney’s banquet, Sunday, for her military service—as tourney medalist after shooting 74-71 in the two-day event.
Cathey, who was 1-over after 15 holes on Tuesday, birdied Nos. 16 and 17 while narrowly missing a birdie on 18.
As a result, she tied her career-low round with that 71 while the two-round 145 matched her 2013 UAB Beach Blast effort. She won the event by six shots.
Cathey topped a field of 49 golfers and helped lead the Lady Govs to the F&M championship, the first at its own event since the 2002 season. The Lady Govs overcame an eight-shot deficit to win by six shots.
It was APSU’s first medalist honor since Tala Munford won the 2013 UAB Beach Blast.
The Golfer of the Week honor was the third for Cathey, the Hixson Tennessee native. She won it for the weeks of October 29th, 2014 and April 17th, 2013.
