In her run to the title in Montgomery, the All-SEC performer from Birmingham took out Curtis Cup champion Robin Burke two-and-one in the quarter-finals. She then defeated Ann Pohira three-and-two in the semi-finals.
"It is a thrill to win such an outstanding tournament," Hutto said. "Every match I played went down to the 17th or 18th hole and the championship went to the 36th hole. I was fortunate to play very good golf this week against a very good field. It was a fun week."
After a close call with winning the national title in 2002, the Auburn women will return for another run at the 2003 title. Courtney Swaim is the only member one of the five-player Auburn NCAA Championship team who was a senior this season.
