New Mexico junior Jodi Ewart has been selected the Mountain West Conference Women's Golfer of the Month for September.
Ewart, a Middleham, North Yorkshire, England, native, won the 29th Branch Law Firm/Dick McGuire Invitational at the UNM Championship Course. She led the Lobos to the team title for the first time since 2003. Ewart shot a 6-under 213 (72-69-72) to take medalist honors by a single stroke over UNLV's Natasha Krishna. Ewart's 6-under score is her best tournament finish as a Lobo in relation to par. It also marked her third individual championship while at New Mexico, tying for the second spot with Dana Howe on UNM's all-time victory list.
Ewart currently ranks first in the MWC for stroke average (71.00) for less than 10 rounds played and is ranked No. 19 nationally by Golfweek. Ewart is representing her native England this week at the World Amateur Team Championships in Australia.
