SAN BRUNO, Calif. -- The West Coast Conference has named its Women’s Golf Player of the Month for March 2014.
WEST COAST CONFERENCE PLAYER OF THE MONTH
- GRACE NA, SR., PEPPERDINE
Senior Grace Na had two more outstanding performances in March, as she won the Anuenue Spring Break Classic and tied for fourth place at the Bruin Wave Invitational. Her winning score of an 11-under 205 in Hawaii was the third-best 54-hole score in program history and she won by eight strokes. It was her sixth individual title, putting her just one behind the Pepperdine record.
Na, the WCC Player of the Month for September, also led the Waves to the team title in Hawaii, and to an impressive second-place finish at the Bruin Wave. Pepperdine only ended up behind No. 1 USC while beating four top-12 ranked teams, including No. 2 UCLA. The Waves also got a win over top-10 Washington in Hawaii. Na finished better than 21 other top-100 ranked players at the Bruin Wave as she finished with an even-par 216. Four of Na’s six rounds during March were below par and she averaged 70.17 strokes per round. Na has improved to No. 5 in Golfstat’s national rankings and No. 6 in Golfweek/Sagarin.
