University of Oklahoma women’s golfer Amparo Gala has been honored as the Big 12 Golfer of the Month for February, the conference office announced Thursday. The honor came after Gala, from Valencia, Spain, took eighth-place honors at the Lady Puerto Rico Classic.

Gala was the Sooners’ top-performer at the Lady Puerto Rico Classic and carded a career-best 220 to earn eighth place against a field that included 10 top-25 teams and five golfers who were ranked in the top 10 individually.  Gala recorded a one-over-par 73 in the first two rounds and a 74 (+2) in the final round to help the Sooners to a third-place team finish.  Gala is currently averaging a 75.16 strokes through five fall tournaments and one spring tournament.

Gala and the Sooners return to action for their second tournament of the spring at the SunTrust Lady Gator Invitational in Gainesville, Fla., March 7-9.  Fans can follow the Sooners via live scoring on
