While a majority of her peers were enjoying their summer breaks, Black and Gold senior Meghan Moore was setting new milestones as she posted the best finish by a female golfer in the Peach Belt Conference history at the 2012 NCAA Division II Women's Golf Championships.
The senior fourth round performance at the 6,283 yard Persimmon Ridge Golf Course was her best round of the tournament.
Moore was the only Brave who qualified for the final tournament of the campaign.
Moore finished the campaign leading the PBC with a 76.03 stroke average, which was also a school record.
The senior's impressive stroke average ranks second all-time in league history behind former University of Montevallo golfer Emily Gibson's stroke average of 75.75 from two seasons prior.
Motivated by last season's finish and a host of postseason recognitions, including qualifying for the U.S. Women's Amateur Championship and being named an All-American, Moore remains optimistic that she will win the national title.
"In order for me to even think about winning the NCAA championships this year, I must play good at regionals," Moore said.
"But I'm just going to continue to work hard on my game and see what happens," Moore said.
The reigning PBC Player of the Year has another year of eligibility left for the Black and Gold to try for a national crown.
