An update on local athletes competing in college.
Emily Tubert (Burroughs High, 2010), Arkansas women's golf, senior: The former Leader Female Athlete of the Year received an impressive conference honor last week when Tubert was selected as the Southeastern Conference Women's Golfer of the Week.
Tubert had a solid performance April 5 at the Liz Murphey Collegiate Classic, helping the No. 4 Razorbacks to a runner-up finish. She opened with a 76 in stroke play, and then won three matches in the match- play portion of the tournament.
Tubert defeated Elyse Smidinger of Denver, 3 and 2, and Ally McDonald of Mississippi State, 2 and 1, propelling Arkansas into the championship match against top-ranked Southern California. Tubert defeated Doris Chen, 4 and 3, in her final match.
This season, Tubert is second on the team with 72.67 stroke average and if season ended today, her 72.67 stroke average would be second all-time for a senior at Arkansas. The senior is on track to set career scoring record with a 72.01 stroke average and she has been Arkansas' top finisher in two events. Tubert earned medalist honors at the Mercedes Benz and has five top-five finishes this year.
