GREENSBORO, N.C. – Wake Forest’s Natalie Sheary and Florida State’s Maria Salinas have been named Atlantic Coast Conference Women’s Co-Golfers of the Month presented by Chevrolet for February.

Wake Forest senior Natalie Sheary (West Hartford, Conn.), bookended her career at the Northrop Grumman Regional Challenge, played February 14-16 in Palos Verdes Estates, Calif., and finished second in a very strong field. Ten out of 13 teams were ranked. She rebounded after an opening round 76 to fire a season-best 5-under 67 in the second round and took the share of the 36-hole lead. Sheary then carded a final round 74 in windy, rainy conditions to finish second. It was her third top-10 finish of her career at the Northrop Grumman as she won the event as a freshman in 2008. Sheary made a total of eight birdies on the week.

Florida State junior Maria Salinas (Lima, Peru), tied her career best collegiate finish and earned her best finish as a Seminole as she finished in second place at the Puerto Rico Classic, played February 13-15 in Rio Grande, Puerto Rico. Salinas earned career best scores for a single round score (69 in the third round) and three round tournament score (213 for the 54 hole event). She helped lead Florida State to a third place team finish in the event as the Seminoles defeated five top 25 ranked teams.
