Stanford's Mariah Stackhouse has received a sponsor's exemption into the LPGA Marathon Classic. The event is scheduled for July 17-20 at Highland Meadows Golf Club in Sylvania, Ohio.
Stackhouse, who just completed her sophomore season, was a key player on the United States Curtis Cup team in St. Louis, winning three points to help the Americans to a lopsided victory over Great Britain and Ireland. Stackhouse also became the first African-American to play in the Curtis Cup matches since the inception of the event in 1932.
