OKLAHOMA CITY (March 26, 2014) – After posting a top-10 individual finish at the Midwestern State Invitational, Oklahoma Christian’s India Matthews was named Wednesday as the National Christian College Athletic Association women’s golf student-athlete of the week.

Matthews, a freshman from Merrimac, Australia, led the Lady Eagles to a fourth-place finish in the 17-team field last week, firing two straight rounds of 76 on the par-72, 6,129-yard layout at The Champions Course at Weeks Park in Wichita Falls, Texas.

Matthews tied for sixth individually in the 96-woman field.

It’s the first time that Matthews has received the NCCAA’s weekly player-of-the-week honor. Teammate Anna Arrese Cortadellas has taken the award four times during the 2013-14 academic year, including last week.
