Elizabeth Cheng '14 shot a final round 79 to finish in a tie for 12th at the NCAA Division III Women's Golf Championships which were held May 14-17 at the Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort in Destin, Florida. Her performance is the best ever for a Hollins golfer in the DIII tournament. She becomes just the second Hollins golfer to earn a berth in the national tournament.
Cheng enjoyed a stellar junior campaign at Hollins and finished the season ranked eighth in the country. The Virginia Beach native won the prestigious Jekyll Island Collegiate, defeating ten of the top 20 golfers in the nation. She was named ODAC Women's Golfer of the Year and also received the 2012-13 Sportswoman of the Year award at Hollins' annual end-of-season Athletic Banquet.

The Hollins golf team finished the 2012 fall campaign by winning three out of their four scheduled events.
"We got off to a great start this year winning three tournaments in a row. It was such a good experience for our players,” said Coach Bill Mannino, now in his sixth year.
The Hollins women started off the fall by winning their home invitational, the McDaniel Invitational, and the Washington and Lee Invitational. The golfers then packed their clubs and headed to the Midwest to compete against a strong field at the Pat Clouse Invitational, hosted by Wittenberg College. The Hollins team successfully battled the wind and finished in the middle of the pack.
"I was truly proud of our team in Ohio. Not only did we hold our own against some strong DIII and DII teams, we had some stellar individual performances," said Mannino.
Elizabeth Cheng '14 finished her fall season ranked fifteenth in the nation, according to Golfstat. Elizabeth won the McDaniel Invitational and the Washington and Lee Invitational, finished second at the Hollins Invitational, and tied for third at the Pat Clouse Invitational. She earned ODAC Player of the Week honors four times in the fall. "We are so grateful to have Elizabeth on our team. She is a caring teammate and a hard worker, and she is starting to believe that she is one of the better players in the country. That type of combination can only lead to success," said Mannino.
The golfers are looking forward to 2013 when they tee it up in the prestigious Jekyll Island tournament hosted by Oglethorpe College in March.
