Lamar earned the first player of the week award given out by the conference to begin the 2019-20 season after a strong showing in the Pioneers' opening tournament of the season this past weekend.

Lamar, a senior from Lewisport, Kentucky (Hancock Co.) turned in a top-five finish to open her season along with the Pioneer women's golf team at the Lynn Schweizer Invitational in Granville, Ohio on Saturday and Sunday.
