CORPUS CHRISTI – Vanessa Johnson has been named the GoIslanders.com Student-Athlete of the Week, presented by Pepsi. Johnson receives the award after making her way into the Texas A&M – Corpus Christi record book.
Johnson set the school record with a 67 in the second round of the Pat Bradley FIU Invitational en route to a 15th place finish overall. The Corpus Christi native became the first player in Islanders history to break 69, a mark previously held by five players, including Johnson at last year's Harold Funston Invite.
Johnson shot 76-67-75 for a three-round 218. The three-round score was the fourth lowest in Islanders lore.
This was the golf's team final event of the fall season, but when the Islanders return to action they will do so in the Coastal Bend, hosting the Islander Classic on Feb. 24-25.
