Crystal River graduate and Western Carolina golfer Rebecca Twiner came back to earth after winning her first tournament on the State Farm Collegiate Players Tour, finishing in a tie for seventh in this week's event at The Club at Eaglebrooke in Lakeland.
Twiner, who won by two strokes last week in Myrtle Beach, S.C., tied with Carrie Sordel of Windermere in a three-day total of 245. Crystal Elliers, Charlotte, La., captured the event title by three strokes with a 230.
Twiner was just two shots off the pace Monday but fell back after carding an 86 in Tuesday's second round. She rebounded with a 78 on Wednesday.
