COVINGTON - Abbey Daniel of Covington captured medalist honors in the stroke play qualifier for the 92nd Louisiana Women’s Amateur Championship on Sunday at Tchefuncta Country Club.

Daniel, a member at Tchefuncta Country Club and rising sophomore at Mississippi State, fired a two-under par 69 and was the only competitor to finish in red figures on Sunday.
