CHICO, Calif. – Leading Cal State San Marcos women’s golf to its third consecutive team title and collecting individual medalist honors, freshman Breann Horn has earned her first career CCAA Golfer of the Week award, for the span of Feb. 6-12. This marks the fourth straight women’s golf honor of the season that has been earned by a Cougar golfer.
Horn went low for a collegiate career-best 68 on the second day of competition to catapult up the leaderboard nine spots to secure individual medalist honors at the Mikuni Sushi Shootout at Catta Verdera GC. She bested a trio that included GolfStat’s 12th-ranked individual Alli Kim of Point Loma and teammate Claire Hogle by one stroke to land at the top of the individual standings. Horn rolled in a tournament-topping eight birdies, including six under-par holes on the final day of play.
Heading into the second and final round, the Cougars owned a slim one-stroke lead over Academy of Art, but the final day belonged to CSUSM as the Cougars finished the round with a combined score of 9-under 279 to outplay the Urban Knights by 29 strokes to set a new program single-round record and ease to the team victory.
Next up, the Cougars take to the course at the Tim Tierney Pioneer Shootout, hosted by fellow CCAA school Cal State East Bay on March 4-5 at Callippe Preserve GC in Pleasanton.
