Sagstrom Helps Europe Retain Vagliano Trophy
BELFAST, Ireland – LSU All-American women’s golf star Madelene Sagstrom was part of the Continental Europe team that was able to keep control of the Vagliano Trophy over Great Britain and Ireland this past weekend at the Malone Golf Club, just outside the Irish city.
The biennial tournament, which pits the best amateurs of Great Britain and Ireland against their continental counterparts, has been held by the European team since 2007 and they took the 2015 edition with a 12 and a half to 11 and a half victory.
Sagstrom, who was 2015 SEC Player of the Year, finalist for the ANNIKA award and ranked No. 2 nationally in the college golf performance ranks and No. 3 in Europe, contributed one point to Europe’s win in a 2&1 decision in Foursomes, teaming with Linnea Strom over Hayley Davis and Charlotte Thomas of Great Britain & Ireland.
Sagstrom also was named LSU Female Athlete of the Year in the ICA LSU Digital Magazine’s latest edition. Fans may subscribe to magazine via mobile devices and tablets using links on www.LSUsports.net/digitalmag.
