Darquea Named ACC Co-Golfer of the Month

GREENSBORO, N.C. – After carding back-to-back tournament wins, Miami Hurricanes freshman Daniela Darquea was named the ACC Co-Golfer of the Month for March. Darquea shares the honor with Duke freshman Yu Liu.

During the month of March, Darquea led the Hurricanes with a 72.22 scoring average. She posted her career-first college tournament victory at the 2014 Hurricane Invitational, shooting a career-low 2-under 211. She carded a first-round 68 and ended the tournament with a final-round 71, besting Iowa State’s Sasikarn On-Iam on the first hole of a sudden-death playoff to secure the win.

Darquea followed it up with a second victory less than two weeks later at the SunTrust Gator Women’s Invitational, where she erased a seven-stroke deficit with a final-round 67 to finish at 4-over 214. She concluded the month of March with a 29th-place finish at the SDSU Farms Invitational.

The Quito, Ecuador, native leads the Hurricanes with a 72.87 scoring average through eight tournaments and 1.39 score vs. par in 23 rounds. She has finished in the top 25 six times, top 15 five times and top 10 four times, while owning Miami’s 18-, 36- and 54-hole season lows.

With its regular season now concluded, the Miami Hurricanes will return to the course April 17-19 at the 2014 ACC Championship in Greensboro, N.C.
