After earning medalist honors at the Fighting Camel Classic, Kaylin Yost of Campbell has been named Big South Conference women’s golfer of the week.
A junior from Fort Lauderdale, Fla., Yost won for the second time as a collegian, when she claimed a three-stroke victory Tuesday at Keith Hills Country Club. She made nine birdies and had 36 pars and led the field with a 1-over scoring average on the par-4 holes.
Yost added her individual title to the trophy she won last March at the James Madison Eagle Landing Invitational. Her 217 marked the second-lowest 54-hole tally in the Fighting Camel Classic, which has been held 18 times.
Yost owns the second-lowest scoring average (73.42) among Big South golfers and she leads the conference with four rounds of 70 or better during the 2012-13 campaign.
