Purpur and Smith Grab SAC Women's Golf All-Tournament Honors

CONOVER, N.C. -- Catawba seniors Eileen Purpur (Boone, NC/Watauga HS) and Elizabeth Smith (Avon Lake, OH/Magnificat HS) closed their careers with top 10 finishes at the 2011 Food Lion South Atlantic Conference Women’s Golf Championships which concluded on Tuesday at the 5,858-yar, par-71 Rock Barn Golf & Spa.  Purpur, who finished sixth, and Smith, who was ninth, earned second team all-tournament honors.

Carson-Newman won the team title with a final-round charge.   The Lady Eagles rallied from a nine-shot deficit starting the final round to top Newberry by four strokes.  Carson-Newman opened with a 319 and after Monday’s second round of 324, the Lady Eagles stood fourth entering the final round.  Carson-Newman responded with a 310 total to finish with a 953 score.  Newberry, which held a five shot lead over Wingate after two rounds, finished at 957.  Catawba placed eighth with a score of 997.

Brenna Martens, of Lenoir-Rhyne University, took medalist honors as she led after each round.  Martens held the lead after each round and survived to take tournament MVP honors by a single shot over Ashley Denton, of Wingate.  Martens had an 80 in the final round and had a 230 total, while Denton carded a 78 on Tuesday to close with a 231 score.  Martens and Denton were joined by Julia Daneshfar, of Newberry, Jessica Tarbet, of Carson-Newman, and Maria Stapleton, of Lincoln Memorial, as first team all-tournament performers.

Joining Purpur and Smith as second team all-tournament picks were Newberry’s Maria Luz Besio and Natalia Perez, Tusculum’s Jillian Corum and Jennifer Oliver, of Carson-Newman.
