July 2, 2014
NACOGDOCHES, Texas - Three Stephen F. Austin women's golfers have been named to the Women's Golf Coaches Association (WGCA) All-American Scholar team for the 2013-14 season. Sophomore Mackenzie Steiner and freshmen Ann Holcomb and Jessica White all picked up the honor, marking the most SFA honorees in a season.
Steiner was named to the team for the second time after earning WGCA All-American Scholor honors in 2012-13 as well. Steiner ranked fifth on the team in scoring average, posting a score of 79.81 over 21 rounds for the Ladyjacks. She carded a pair of 1-under 71 rounds, tied for the third-best in program history, and posted her first career top-20 finish by tying for 19th overall at the Texas A&M-Corpus Christi Islander Classic.
Holcomb competed in 21 events for SFA in 2013-14, posting an 80.05 scoring average with a low round of 75. She notched her first career top-20 finish as well, tying for 13th at the Houston Baptist Husky Invitational, and posted the seventh-lowest 36-hole score in program history at the LeTriomphe Classic in Broussard, La.
White competed in six events for the Ladyjacks, compiling a 78.76 scoring average over 17 rounds. She tied the SFA program record for lowest 54-hole score with a 10-over 233 at the Harold Funston Invitational while firing a 1-under 71, tying for the third-lowest single-round score in program history.
Steiner joins Sara Jones (2010-11, 2011-12) as the second two-time honoree in program history. With the honors for Holcomb and White, the Ladyjacks have now had four golfers earn the award since the program was started five seasons ago.
A total of 664 women’s collegiate golfers from across Division I, II and III were recognized with this prestigious honor. The criteria for selection to the All-American Scholar Team are some of the most stringent in all of college athletics as the minimum cumulative GPA is 3.50 to be eligible for the award.
