(ST. GEORGE, Utah – October 4, 2018) Dixie State sophomore Kaitlynn Deeble was named Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference Women's Golf Player of the Week Thursday for her performance earlier this week at the Fifth-Annual DSU Fall Invitational played at Sand Hollow Golf Course.
Deeble (5-5; Boise, Idaho/Centennial HS) tied for runner-up honors, her best collegiate finish, at even par 144 to help lead the Trailblazers to a fifth-place team finish. She fired a career-best 3-under 69 in Monday’s opening round, which tied the DSU program record for lowest individual 18-hole score, and she became the first Trailblazer in program history to post a 3-under par score in any round.
The sophomore’s two-round total of 144 tied for the second-lowest individual 36-hole score in program history. In addition, Deeble led the 60-player field in par-4 scoring (-1), was t-6th in par-5 scoring (E), and finished t-4th in total birdies (6) and pars (25).
Dixie State continues its fall schedule at the Western Washington Invitational this Monday and Tuesday at the Bellingham Golf & Country Club in Bellingham, Wash.
