McCoy Wins Title at Windy City Collegiate Classic
Oct. 2, 2012
GOLF, Ill. -- TCU sophomore April McCoy carded a career-best 69 to overcome a four-stroke final-round deficit and win the individual championship at the Windy City Collegiate Classic.
McCoy recorded four birdies in a seven-hole stretch on the front nine. She totaled five birdies en route to her 3-under-par 69. She finished with a 2-under 214 for the tournament, edging Demi Runas of UC Davis and Notre Dame's Lindsey Weaver by one stroke for the title.
A sophomore from Carrollton, Texas, McCoy is the ninth different Horned Frog to capture medalist honors in a tournament in the 19-year tenure of head coach Angie Ravaioli-Larkin. It's the 22nd overall individual title by a TCU golfer under Ravaioli-Larkin and the first since Sanna Nuutinen won the 2012 Mountain West Championship.
Nuutinen did not play in the Windy City Collegiate Classic as she is representing her native Finland at the Women's World Amateur Team Championship in Antalya, Turkey.
The Horned Frogs finished 12th in the team standings.
TCU returns to action Oct. 15 at the Susie Maxwell Berning Classic in Norman, Okla.
