July 13, 2004
Winston-Salem, NC - Two members of the Wake Forest Women's Golf Team find themselves ranked in the US-Amateur Women Top-50 this week, according to golfweek.com. The Golfweek/Titleist Women's Amateur Rankings are based on points awarded for specific finishes in designated tournaments over the past 52 weeks.
Senior Ashley Hoagland landed herself a spot as the eighth-ranked female amateur in the nation. Hoagland led the Deacons in stroke average in the Fall of 2003, and in the Spring was second in the same category to teammate Christine Hallstrom. She led the team with a 54-hole low of 217, in top-10 finishes (2) and top-20 finishes (3). She rounded out the ACC Tournament with a tie for seventh place. This summer, Hoagland shot a 71 at the Sedgefield Country Club in Greensboro, NC to qualify for the 2004 U.S. Women's Amateur.
Hoagland will be joined at the Amateur by incoming freshman Laura Crawford. The Lancaster, SC native finished second at the Hargray Junior Classic last week, after falling just short in a three hole playoff to Kristin Wetzel of Middletown, N.Y.
Sophomore Maggie Simons finds herself at No. 48 this week. As a freshman in the 2003-04 season, Simons played in three events, for an 18-hole stroke average of 80.5. Her best finish was 35th, in the ACC/SEC Challenge at the Raven Golf Course in Destin, Florida.
