Shawnee Martinez advanced to the U.S. Women's Amateur Public Links Championship in Norman, Okla.

May 23, 2013

STOCKTON, Calif. - Long Beach State freshman Shawnee Martinez was the medalist finisher in Wednesday's U.S. Women's Amateur Public Links Sectional Qualifying at the Reserve at Spanos Park Golf Course.

The Modesto native recorded three birdies, three bogeys and one double-bogey to post a 74 in very windy conditions in Stockton.

Martinez advances to the WAPL Championship, June 17-22, at the Jimmie Austin OU Golf Club in Norman, Okla.

The Modesto native completed her first season at LBSU, where she helped the 49ers capture three tournament titles and a second-place finish at the Big West Conference Championship.  Martinez led the 49ers with a stroke average of 76.82, collecting two top-10 finishes and one top-20.

"I'm so proud of Shawnee and this huge win," head coach Joey Cerulle said "It's yet another accomplishment in what should be a very good career at The Beach. I'm also hoping that she has some teammates join her in Norman when the Southern Qualifier is played on June 3rd."
