CHARLESTON, S.C. – While College of Charleston’s Kathryn Miranda prepares for the MCAT entering her senior year, she also is tuning up her golf game for her final collegiate season with the Cougars.
The only rising senior on the team, Miranda is mixing golf this summer with her preparation for a future medical school stint. She is currently majoring in biology and is on track to graduate next May.
A native of Lexington, S.C., Miranda recently won the Columbia City Women’s Amateur with a three-round score of 72-68-73—213 (-3). In addition, she made a runner-up finish at the Carolinas Women’s Amateur Championship in May. Miranda shot an even par 216 and held the lead for the first two rounds of the tournament.
In her latest event, she shot a final-round 69 on her way to a 15th-place finish at the prestigious Women’s Eastern Amateur Golf Championship.
“Kathryn has been working hard on her game for the past few years,” CofC Head Coach Jamie Futrell said. “Her hard work is definitely starting to pay off.”
CofC will open the 2013-14 campaign playing host to its annual Cougar Classic at Yeamans Hall Club on Sept. 8-10 in Hanahan, S.C.
