CONWAY, Ark. (UCA) -- University of Central Arkansas senior Julia Roth was named the Southland Conference Golfer of the Month on Wednesday, her fourth honor of the year.
Roth, from Karlskrona, Sweden, is the first women's golfer in conference history to earn the award four times in a season. She was also honored in September, October and March.
Roth earned her second medalist honors of the season at last week's Houston Baptist Husky Invitational, shooting a 4-over 220 to win by three strokes. Through eight tournaments this season, Roth has been in the Top 3 seven times. Roth averaged 73.3 strokes with a low round of 72 for the month of April.
Roth looks to continue her strong play when she leads UCA into the seven-team field at the Southland Conference Women's Golf Tournament at Frisco Lakes Golf Club in Frisco, Texas, April 15-17.
