Rising sophomore Emma Fisher won the IWGA State Amateur Championship at Rock Hollow Golf Club in Peru, Indiana.

The Bloomington native finished with a final score of 220, four over par and two stokes clear of the second-place golfer, Julia Potter from Indianapolis.

Fisher’s consistent play over the three-round competition helped her walk away victorious.

She shot a 72 in round one followed by a 77 in round two before shooting her best score of 71 in the final round.

As a freshman, Fisher played in 15 rounds and averaged 78.39 per round.

Her best finish of the season was at the IU Invitational where she tied for eighth with a score of 225.

The IU women’s golf team will start their season in Fort Collins, Colorado on September 17, 2017 with the Ptarmigan Ram Classic.

The Hoosiers finished seventh in this tournament last season with a score of 899.
