MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WTVA/BMC Athletics) - Blue Mountain College Golf's Dejone Stemmett (JR/Mpumalanga, South Africa) has been named the Southern States Athletic Conference's Golfer of the Week, the home office announced Tuesday.
Stemmett is steadily becoming one of the top golfers on the women's side in the SSAC. She helped lead BMC to a third-place finish last week at the College of the Ozarks Invitational where she shot 82-83-165, good enough for fourth individually.
In the previous tournament, the Redhawk Fall Classic, Stemmett medaled in sixth place, leading BMC to a third-place finish in that event also.
Head coach Kevin Barefield commented, "I'm very proud of Dejone and she is very deserving of this award." She has been a solid contributor to our team the entire fall season, so we believe her best golf is still ahead of her in the spring. It's a big honor to win this award, because the SSAC is one of the premier conferences in the nation."
