FORT WORTH, Texas - Sophomore Camille Blackerby earned her first Conference USA Golfer of the Month title for February, the league office announced today.

She helped the Horned Frogs to a strong team performance at the Lady Puerto Rico Classic. Blackerby and the team each placed second at the tournament, beating out five Top 25 teams in the process.
TCU moved up the college rankings this month as the Horned Frogs earned a second place finish at the Lady Puerto Rico Invitational in San Juan. Blackerby finished second in the individual standings, shooting a five-over-par 75-72-74=221. The second round 72 is her season low. TCU finished behind a No. 3 Auburn team, and beat out teams from No. 5 Georgia, No. 17 Texas, No. 18 Wake Forest, No. 21 USC and No. 22 Tulsa. The performance moved TCU up 17 spots in the national rankings to No. 32. Blackerby also tied for sixth place at the Texas A&M "Mo"Morial Invitational.
The golfer of the week title is Blackerby's first and TCU's first since Brooke Tull earned it in September of 2003.
