The accolades keep on coming for former Cyclone golfer Celia Barquin Arozamena.

On Saturday, Barquin Arozamena won the European Ladies Amateur, qualifying for the Ricoh Women’s British Open in the process. 

The victory comes just a couple of weeks after the recently graduated Cyclone was named the Iowa State Female Athlete of the Year for the 2017-18 season.

Barquin Arozamena finished with a four-day score or 16-under 272, including a 9-under 63 in Saturday’s third round to take a two-shot lead and setting the course record at Penati Golf Resort in Senica, Slovakia. She shot a final round 69 to win by one.

The Ricoh Women’s British Open will be held from Aug. 2-5 at Royal Lytham and St. Anne’s Golf Club in Lytham Saint Annes, Lancashire, England. The tournament will be shown on the Golf Channel and NBC throughout the week.
