Top Performance #3: Vanessa Johnson Shoots School-Record 67
The Texas A&M-Corpus Christi women's golf team climbed back in the second round of the 36th annual FIU Pat Bradley Invitational on Monday, Oct. 21. The squad trimed six shots from their team score in the first round, shooting a total of 309 as a whole with the help of Vanessa Johnson.
There were many impressive contributions including Krista Fenniak and Claudia Galindoeach shooting an 88, while senior Lindsay Biehler added a 78 along with Ana Peredes' 76 to bring the Islanders to 16th place in the first two rounds.
However, no performance was more notable than that of Johnson. The Corpus Christi native came out focused and scored 34 on the front and 33 on the back to come within three shots of the individual lead. The junior shattered the school record with a 67 after going in as the low round of the day in the field. The record broke the previous mark of 69 that was set by five other Islanders players.
Johnson earned Honorable Mention All-Southland honors after a stellar junior season. She also received her second GoIslanders.com Student-Athlete of the Week honor of the season after her first-place finish in the UALR Women's Golf Classic. The victory marked her second title of her career and her fourth top-5 finish.
