BUIES CREEK, N.C. -- Campbell junior Annelie Sjoholm was named Big South women's golfer of the week for the third time this spring after guiding CU to a fourth place finish against a top-flight field at the SunTrust Gator Invitational.

Sjoholm (70-76-73—219) tied for 18th place at 9-over in an event where only two golfers finished in red numbers on the par-70, 6002-yard Mark Bostic GC.  In her previous two outings, Sjoholm won the Amelia Island Collegiate (Feb. 20-21) and finished third at the UNF Collegiate (Mar. 6-7).  She owns the best stroke average (73.43) among all Big South women's golfers and stands 114th nationally in the Golfstat Cup.

Against a field that included four top-50 ranked teams, Campbell finished fourth after Sunday's final round of the SunTrust Gator Invitational at Mark Bostick Golf Course. Only sixth-ranked Florida (285-280-282—847), 11th-ranked Duke (289-283-283—855) and No.-25 UCF (295-284-284—863) finished ahead of No.-54 Campbell (295-284-293—882).  No.-38 Clemson was fourth (884) in the 13-team field.  Campbell also finished ahead of Big Ten members Maryland (889) and No.-44 Wisconsin (902) as well as Virginia Tech of the ACC (899) and Big-12 member Kansas (919).

The Campbell women continue their spring campaign this weekend at the Briar's Creek Invitational at Johns Island, S.C.  CU women have accumulated nine Big South golfer or freshman of the week honors this season.
