Tusculum University women's golfer Katie Tomassoni has been named the Applebee's Female Student-Athlete of the Month for September.

Tomassoni, a senior from Mason, Ohio, repeated as medalist at the Bob Dibble Classic and finished runner-up at the Mars Hill Fall Invitational.  She led the Pioneers to team titles in both of those tournaments while posting a stroke average of 73.67. 

In the Dibble Classic, Tomassoni sank a four-foot putt for par to win on the first playoff hole to capture her second TU Fall Classic title and third medal of her collegiate career.  She posted a two-day score of 71-75=146 as Tusculum won the Dibble Classic for a fourth consecutive year.  Tomassoni opened the MHU Invitational with a 75 and was one shot of the lead.  The final round was rained out as Tusculum won the team title and Tomassoni finished in a five-way tie for second.

The Tusculum Student-Athlete of the Month Award is sponsored by Applebee's Neighborhood Grill & Bar of Greeneville.  The Applebee's Student-Athlete of the Month Award honors one male and one female student-athlete each month from an in-season sport during the 2018-2019 academic year, recognizing their hard work, effort and performance.
