Urbana University’s Courtney Tierney has been selected Mountain East Conference Women’s Golfer of the Week, the league office announced on Wednesday.

Tierney, a senior from Wilder, Ky., finished third overall among the field of 91 golfers en route to an all-tournament team selection at the OVU Classic last weekend.

It was the second-highest finish by Tierney during her collegiate career.

She carded a 16-over par 160 with individual round scores of 81 and 79. Her second round total tied her career low and is tied for the second-lowest round in program history.

The UU women’s golf team will compete in the MEC Fall Championships, starting on Oct. 10 at the Glade Springs Resort in Daniels, W. Va.
