A 2013 Frankenmuth High School graduate and golf standout recently earned top honors at a collegiate golf tourney.

Watkins fired a two-day, three-over-par score of 147 at the Eagle Crest Golf Club in Ypsilanti. She shot 72 on day one and 75 on day two as the course measured 6,010 yards and scored as a par 72.
Lindsay McPherson of Michigan State University carded a 150 for second place, with Eastern Michigan University’s Kelsey Murphy taking third at 151. Play took place in a steady rain.
Overall, there were 27 golfers from 23 colleges and universities, including Penn State, Princeton, Furman, Grand Valley State, Bowling Green, Wisconsin and Dayton.
Kaitlyn is the daughter of Scott and Rosien Watkins of Frankenmuth.
