IRVINE, Calif. - Long Beach State senior Simone Hoey was named Big West Conference Women's Golfer of the Month for April, the league office announced on Thursday.
The Rancho Cucamonga native captured her second career individual medalist honors earlier this week at the Fresno State Lexus Classic and helped LBSU win its second tournament team title this season.
Hoey recorded a 54-hole score of 5-under par 211 after shooting rounds of 72-69-70 at the par-72, 6,212 yard Copper River Country Club in Fresno. Hoey was only one of two players to finish under par as she won by four strokes over Big West Freshman of the Year candidate Luciane Lee (-1) of UC Irvine.
Hoey's second round score of 69 matched a career-low as she previously carded that number twice in her career, both taking place at the Ptarmigan Ram Fall Classic (2009, 2012) in Fort Collins, Colo.
Hoey was also the top player at the inaugural Black & Blue Rivalry Match vs. UC Irvine as she led all 14 players from both teams with a 1-over 72 and led the 49ers to a five-shot victory over the Anteaters at Strawberry Farms Golf Club in Irvine.
This is the second monthly award for Hoey as she previously won the honors in 2011 for the month of February. This also marked the first monthly award for LBSU since October of 2011, when former 49er Noelle Zavaleta took home the honors.
LBSU returns to action Apr. 21-23, traveling up to San Luis Obispo for the Big West Conference Women's Golf Championship at the San Luis Obispo Country Club.
