Vanessa Johnson Named GoIslanders.com Student-Athlete of the Week

CORPUS CHRISTI – Vanessa Johnson has been named the GoIslanders.com Student-Athlete of the Week, presented by Pepsi. Johnson earns the award after a first-place finish in the UALR Women's Golf Classic.

Johnson shot 74-71-74 to take the title with a three-round 219, two shots ahead of Central Arkansas' Sarah Brown. The Corpus Christi native now has four top-5 finishes in her three years with the Islanders, with this marking the second title of her career.

Johnson and the rest of her team returned to the course Monday in the Husky Invitational hosted by Houston Baptist University at Riverbend Country Club and will conclude action Tuesday.
