Lewis helps United States to win

FAYETTEVILLE – University of Arkansas junior Stacy Lewis carded a final round 76 helping the United States to a sweep of the titles at the 2007 Copa de las Americas at Beacon Hill Golf Club in Aurora, Ont., Saturday. Lewis grabbed the individual women’s lead on Friday but a two-under 70 by American teammate Jennie Lee gave Lee the medalist honors. Lewis finished second overall as the American women, American men and team America won all three team titles. Canada, who had won the last two titles in the bi-annual event, finished third overall behind Mexico. Lewis paired with Jonathan Moore, Webb Simpson and Lee as the team fired a score of 1-under on the day and 28-over for the championship to take home the titles. "We had the A-team here this week and when you’ve got that kind of talent, my job becomes easy," said team captain Loren Singletary. "They battled through some tough conditions over the first couple days on a real challenging golf course and I’m proud of the way they all held together. The Copa championship is all about the spirit of friendship among the countries and all the players of the Americas and while we’re certainly happy to win, it was just wonderful to be apart of it all." On the women’s side, the United States finished with a convincing 24-stroke victory over the Team Canada pairing of Matthews and Sherlock. Lewis and Lee finished a combined 2-over on the day to win the country’s first women’s team title. Lee shot the women’s round of the day with a 2-under 70 under to sit atop the individual leaderboard at 8-over for the championship while Lewis was second at 12-over.
