Melanie had her most complete tournament performance of her career this week against the toughest field in D3 women's golf. She shot rounds of 82-80-81 at the Golfweek Fall Invitational and led the Mountaineers for the event with a 31st place finish. Melanie is having a breakout fall season, averaging 80.00 through two tournaments. She has been a Dean's List performer virtually every semester of her collegiate career and will graduate in May with her degree in Business/Marketing.
The senior from Deer Park, TX (Deer Park HS) shot the round of the tournament, a six-under par 65, to vault 44 places at the Golfweek Fall Invitational and finish 9th overall. His score along with senior Jimmy Keener's on the last day (69) kept the Mountaineers from a disastrous result that could have ended the team's chances of defending their national title next May. Cheyne is also a standout in the classroom and earned Academic All-American honors this summer after completing an All-American junior year on the course. He is a Graphic Design major and will graduate in May.
