Freshman Angel Sanchez of the Oglethorpe women's golf team has been named the SAAC Female Athlete of the Week for her efforts at the Chick-fil-A Collegiate Invitational early in the week.
Sanchez fired rounds of 4-over-par 76 and 1-over 73 during the 36-hole tournament at Coosa Country Club in Rome, Georgia, Monday and Tuesday, putting herself in a tie for second place at the event with Berry's Jorie Hodapp. The pair finished just five strokes back of Methodist's Johnna Beehner, the tournament's individual medalist. Sanchez also led the Stormy Petrels to a third-place finish at the event.
Sanchez and the rest of the Petrels will now head into the winter break. They'll return March 5 for the first round of the Callaway Gardens Collegiate Invitational in Pine Mountain.
