Iowa women's golf sophomore Lauren English finished with a 1-over 73 at the Blackberry Oaks Country Club on Monday to qualify for the 2012 U.S. Women's Amateur. English tied for fourth in the qualifier.

Brenda Pictor won the qualifier with a 71.

English will play in the U.S. Women's Amateur on Aug. 6-12 at the Country Club in Cleveland.

English returned to her home state to compete in the qualifier in Bristol, Ill. English was ranked the No. 1 golfer in the state for her high-school class of 2011. The Hawkeye also landed in the top 50 recruits nationally.

The sophomore-to-be competed in 11 tournaments during her freshman year at Iowa, swinging for a 78.44 stroke average. The Hawkeye's highest finish on the season was a tie for 12th at the Wyoming Cowgirl Classic.
