Warwickshire’s Hannah Coles has claimed her first outright victory on the US women’s college circuit.

Hannah, from Maxstoke Park, came from two shots behind to win the individual title at the 2008 Lady Herd Fall Classic in Huntington, West Virginia.

She had five birdies in her second round, which included holing out from 100-yards on the par four 11th at Sleepy Hollow golf course.  She was four-over for the two rounds with scores of 75, 73 and she won by a shot.

Earlier in this autumn season, Hannah tied for first place in the Charleston Southern Invitational – only to lose the title in an all English play-off with Olivia Jordan-Higgins of Royal Jersey.

Hannah is a student at Radford University, Virginia, and is the first girl from her college to win a tournament since 2001.  She has recently been voted Big South Co-Women’s Golfer of the Week.
