RICHMOND, Va. (October 17, 2012) - Richmond senior Tracy Martin received CAA Women's Golfer of the Week honors for the first time this fall after winning the CSU Wendy's Invitational and becoming the second golfer in program history to earn medalist honors in a full-field event.

Martin won the event after carding 1-under par 71. The CSU Wendy's Invitational was held at the par 72, 6,011-yard Rivertowne Country Club in Charleston, S.C. The senior shot a season-low 70 in the first round and followed it up with a one-over 73 in the second round. Martin claimed the title after passing leader Jenna Birch of Armstrong Atlantic State with an even-par 72 in the final round (70-73-72-215). Martin's total of 215 ties her own 54-hole school record she set at the Spider Invitational last season.  The Spiders won the event by 12 strokes over second place Wofford. The title is the second in the program's history and the first under newly welcomed head coach Maggie Will.
