AMATEUR CAREER
As a sophomore-to-be Gabriela Lopez took part in several amateur events during the summer months. Lopez tied for second at a U.S. Women’s Amateur qualifier and reached the first round of match play at the amateur.

She finished third at the Canadian Amateur shooting 69-75-71-68=283 in Beloeil, Qubec, and took part in the Northwest Arkansas LPGA Championship on a sponsor’s exemption shooting 79-74=153.

Lopez had a busy summer of amateur golf before joining the Razorbacks in the fall of 2012.  Lopez joined future Razorback teammate Emily Tubert at The Spirit International in November of 2011 in an international event in Texas.

She then joined former Razorback Stacy Lewis at the 2012 U.S. Women’s Open in Kohler, Wis.  Although she did not make the cut, the experience propelled her on to the 110th North & South Amateur Championship.  Lopez posted a 221 playing 15th overall in stroke play before being eliminated in match play.

AS A SOPHOMORE (2013-14)
Success continued for Gabriela Lopez in her second season of college golf. She opened with a 215 to tie for 17th at the NCAA Preview shooting 72-73-70 against one of the toughest fields of the fall. Lopez went two-under with 72-68 in the rain-shortened Mercedes Benz to tie for second and was one-under with a 215 at the Ruth's Chris Tar Heel Invitational to tie for eighth.  Lopez remained under par with a three-under 213 with rounds of 73-68-72 to tie for seventh overall at the Alamo Invitational as she played the four fall events one-under.

Her success continued in the spring with Lopez picked up a third-place finish in Puerto Rico and winning the stroke play title at the Liz Murphey Collegiate.  She also rallied winning a one-hole playoff at LSU for the individual title helping Arkansas to the team title.  Lopez went into the SEC Championship playing well and finished tied for second overall at the league event with a one-over 217 at Greystone.  She capped the season at the NCAA Central Regional carding a 71 in the second round finishing with five birdies in the final six holes.

Lopez was selected to the SEC First-Team, her second All-SEC honor, and finished the year with a team-best 72.85 stroke average.   And has a 72.87 career average.

AS A FRESHMAN (2012-13)
Lopez was immediately impactful for the Razorbacks as a freshman.  Lopez competed in all 11 team events on one as an individual with a 73.77 stroke average ranking second on the team.  Lopez opened her Razorback career shooting a 210 with rounds of 72-70-68, tying the eighth-best three round total in program history.

She improved on that with a 208 shooting 72-70-66 at the Westbrook Invitational.  Her 208 ranks tied for the fourth-best round and her 66 in the final round ties the school record for best single round.  Lopez finished the year with four top 10 finishes and picked up her first collegiate win at the Westbrook Invitational in February.
    
Lopez was selected to the Southeastern Conference All-Freshman Team and was an All-SEC Second-Team selection as a freshman. Lopez was named an honorable mention All-American by Golfweek, earned SEC Freshman of the Week honors and is a National Golf Coaches Association All-Scholar selection.

Lopez was a member of the Razorback Athletic Department’s Athletic Director’s List with a GPA from 3.50-3.99 for the fall 2012 and spring 2013 semesters.
