This is the second such honor for the Austin Peay State University Hixon senior, who also gained such distinction last fall after earning medalist honors at the F&M Bank APSU Intercollegiate.

In fact, the Saluki Invitational triumph was Cathey’s third this season.

At the Hickory Ridge Golf Club, Cathey erased a three-shot deficit on the final to win by two shots, shooting a final-round 70 to end at even-par 144 two-day total.  She claimed medalist honors out of 15 teams, including three other OVC squads and 90 golfers at the Saluki Invitational with her two-shot victory.

Cathey led the tourney with eight birdies, five on the final day, and owned a tourney-best 3.85 average on par 4s.

Cathey currently ranks eighth in the OVC in stroke average (76.4).
