FRISCO, Texas - The Southland Conference announced the women's golfer of the month for March as Lamar junior Linda Persson.

Persson takes home her first award of the season and joins teammate Therese Nilsson - the October award winner - as the only league team with two monthly award winners.

Persson posted a 77.17 stroke average in two events, and in five of six rounds scored in the 70s with all six counting towards the team score.

The Hollviken, Sweden native led Lamar to a pair of top-three team finishes, including a shared first-place showing at the Claud Jacobs Intercollegiate, which had five Southland teams competing. Persson finished in second at the Claud Jacobs for the second-straight year, due in large part to a season-best 71 in the opening round, tying her second-lowest career score.

Her two top-five individual showings this month gives her three on the year.

Honorable Mention: Nicole Forshner, UCA; Gabby De Reuck, TXST; Laura Baker, UTSA.

Voters: Central Arkansas, Lamar, Nicholls State, Sam Houston State, UTSA, Texas A&M-Corpus Christi, Texas State.
