UVa golfer Lauren Coughlin is the 88th annual VSGA Women's Amateur Golf Champion.
The Cavalier sophomore beat Amanda Hollandsworth 3-and-2 in the 36-hole match play final at The Country Club of Virginia in Richmond Saturday.
Coughlin led by as many as seven holes on the second eighteen, and became just the third player in the last fifteen years to win back-to-back championships.
Coughlin will be back in action Tuesday at the 111th Women's North and South Amateur Championship at Pinehurst Resort in North Carolina.
