Harvey is Golfer of the Month

Posted

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — Sophomore Haverly Harrold has been named the Gulf South Conference Women's Golfer of the Month for September after two solid tournaments to start the season.

Harrold finished in a tie for second and was named to the All-Tournament team at the University of Indianapolis Fall Invitational on Sept. 11-12.

Playing against some of the toughest competition in NCAA Division II, Harrold fired a 1-under par 71 in round one and was tied for first. She followed that up with a final round 75.

The Jonesborough native went on to card a 6-over 150 and tied for 21st at the Battle of Old South on Sept. 23-24, hosted by the University of North Carolina Pembroke. As a team the Lee ladies turned in a top-five finish.

"Haverly is off to a great start this year. Our first tournament in Indianapolis included some of the top players in the country, and Haverly was in the mix for Medalist the whole way," said head coach John Maupin. She's been putting in a lot of hard work, and is just scratching the surface of what she's capable of."

Harrold and the Lady Flames will get back on the links in Dahlonega, Ga., Oct. 16 for the LeeAnn Noble Memorial hosted by the University of North Georgia.

Lady Flames show
success in classroom

The Lee softball team achieved success not only on the ball field last season but in the classroom as well as it placed 12th in NCAA Division II with a 3.592 Team GPA.

The Lady Flames moved up from No. 25 last season and were again honored as an Easton/NFCA All-Academic Team.

Lee advanced all the way to the South Super Regional in 2017 and finished the season ranked No. 15 in the nation with a record of 36-20.

"I am proud of Team 31 and this academic achievement.  We had a very successful season athletically and to be honored for this prestigious academic award, I am even more excited about how well these athletes preformed," said head coach Emily Russell.

"This is our highest team GPA since I have been coach and I am proud of how hard these girls work in the classroom to pursue excellence.

"Lee was the highest ranking Gulf South Conference school with Valdosta State (No. 24) and Mississippi College (No. 33)  also finishing in the Top 50 .
