Martin Named Golfer of the Week

April 9, 2014

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - Boise State sophomore Samantha Martin was named the Mountain West Women's Golfer of the Week, the league office announced Wednesday.

Martin captured her second career tournament victory of the season at the Cowgirl Classic, Tuesday. She recorded a three-round total of 215 (76-68-71, -1) at the Ak-Chin Southern Dunes Golf Club in Maricopa, Ariz., the second-lowest 54-hole tournament score in school history.

Included was a second-round, 4-under 68, the lowest single-round score in school history.

Her final-round 1-under 71 gave her a share of medalist honors, as she erased what was a three-stroke deficit entering the final round to finish tied for first with two others.

Martin is the fourth women's golfer in school history to record multiple victories in her career, and just the third to accomplish the feat in a single season. The last Bronco to win multiple titles in the same season was Acey Erlandson in 1999-2000.

Martin now has a school-record six top-10 finishes in 2013-14, and her scoring average of 74.88 leads the team.
