University of Southern Indiana sophomore women's golfer Taylor Merriss (Evansville, Indiana) finished first in the Evansville Courier & Press Women's City Golf Tournament, completing a two-day, two-round tournament one stroke in front of second-place finisher Meghan Perry.

Merriss, a criminal justice studies major from Evansville's Bosse High School, shot a one-under-par 73 at Helfrich Hills Golf Course on July 17 to open the tournament. She closed the tournament with a two-over-par 74 two days later to finish with a score of 147 and her first-ever tournament victory.

In 2010-11, Merriss ranked fifth on the team with an 88.1 strokes-per-round averaged through 17 holes. Merriss shot a 74 on the final day of the Great Lakes Valley Conference Championship last spring, her best 18-hole score of the season, to help the Screaming Eagles capture their first-ever conference title. She finished the GLVC Championship with a season-best 36-hole score of 153.
