Lyon of the Week Awarded to Mendiola

Madi Mendiola First year golf team member Madi Mendiola has earned the Lyon of the Week Award for the week of October 10-16 after her second place performance at Wellesley College's Ann S. Batchelder Invitational over the weekend.

The rookie carded a two-day score of 154 at the tournament, which was took place at Nehoiden Golf Course (par 72 - 5,860 yards). She finished just four strokes off the pace set by Williams College's Georgiana Salant. Mendiola was at her best on Saturday, when she fired a 76. She then closed out the weekend with a 78 on Sunday.

Over the course of her brief career at Mount Holyoke, Mendiola has quickly made her presence felt. She was the Lyons' top finisher in all four of their tournaments this fall and will enter the spring with an average score of 79.5.

After nabbing 13th place in her collegiate debut at the New York University Invitational, she posted three straight top ten finishes. Her two-round total of 158 was good for seventh place at the Mount Holyoke Invitational. Two weeks later, she grabbed fifth place with a score of 160 at the Williams Fall Classic.

The Lyons have completed their fall slate and will return to action in the spring.
