Melanie Green, who is a senior at the University of South Florida, finished in a tie for third place at the American Athletic Conference women’s golf championship tournament which concluded today at Brooksville, Florida.

Finishing three shots off the pace, Green, who is a Medina High graduate, posted a 6 under par total of 210 on rounds of 71-67-72.

One under after the opening round, Green had a big second round with six birdies and an eagle to more than offset three bogies for a 5 under par 67. At one stretch she had five birdies in a row from the second through the sixth holes.

Today she had three birdies and an eagle off setting five bogeys to finish with an even par round of 72.

Last year Green finished fourth at the AAC championship tournament.

USF also finished third in the final team standings.

Next up for Green will be the NCAA Regional tournament.
