HERSHEY, Pa. (AP) - Ellen Port won the USGA Senior Women's Amateur on Thursday, beating Jane Fitzgerald 4 and 3 on Hershey Country Club's West Course.

The 50-year-old Port, from St. Louis, won her fifth career USGA women's title.

``It's an honor to be another USGA champion,'' said Port, who won her fourth U.S. Women's Mid-Amateur title last September. ``I have a medal and a flag in the same (calendar) year that I won the Mid-Am. I am so shocked and ecstatic.''

Port overcame a one-hole deficit, winning five consecutive holes on the back nine.

The 50-year-old Fitzgerald, from Kensington, Md., is a former Penn State player.
