(ROCHESTER, N.Y.) – Freshman Sriya Mupparaju (San Diego, Calif./Del Norte) of the Carnegie Mellon University women's golf team was named University Athletic Association (UAA) Women's Golf Athlete of the Week following her play at the Montgomery Country Club Women's Intercollegiate. Mupparaju claimed individual medalist honors at the 36-hole event on the par-72, 5,632-yard Montgomery Country Club course.

In her first collegiate event, Mupparaju broke the lowest individual 36-hole total in the program's history by eight strokes with a six-under par 138 (70-68). She carded 10 birdies for the tournament and shot a four-under 68 in the final round which is the third lowest 18-hole round for a Tartan.

The Tartans will be back on the Links September 27-28 when they travel to Houston, Texas for the NCAA Preview at Bay Oaks Country Club.
