CANTON, MO (05/04/2012)(readMedia)-- Culver-Stockton College freshman Megan Miehe became the first Heart of America Athletic Conference champion in program history on Tuesday, winning by one shot at Hail Ridge Golf Course in Boonville, Mo.

Miehe, of Davenport, Iowa (Hempstead HS – Dubuque, Iowa), shot a 12-over 84 to finish with a 36-hole total of 19-over 163. She made a birdie on her final hole and then had to wait for four groups to finish before finding out she won by a single shot.

As a team, C-SC finished fourth in the six-team field. The Lady Wildcats' 750 total put them 35 shots behind champion Avila University (Mo.).
