BIRMINGHAM, Ala. ---- UAB women’s golfer Margaret Yeh was recently named UAB Student-Athlete of the Week for her excellence in the classroom and on the golf course.
The industrial distribution major maintains a 4.00 GPA and has averaged an 82.5 on the course for the women’s golf team this season. Yeh has received the UAB Presidential Honor each of her first three semesters. Last season, she received the 2011-12 C-USA Commissioner’s Academic Medal and was named to the C-USA Commissioner’s Honor Roll.
On the course, Yeh has put together a solid 2012-13 campaign with one top-10 and a pair of top-25 finishes in seven tournaments.
The sophomore’s best finish came last fall when she fired career-best rounds of even par 72 and one-over par 73, to finish in a tie for ninth place at the Great Smokies Intercollegiate.
