April 13, 2005
IRVING, Texas - Former University of Memphis women's golfers Meaghan Francella and Kim Hunt-McNeil were named to the Conference USA All-Decade Team on Wednesday.
C-USA is celebrating its 10th anniversary during the 2004-05 sason. In conjunction, the league is naming a Team of the Decade for each of the conference's 19 sports.
Francella (2000-02) was a two-time all-conference selection (2001, 2002) and was named the C-USA Freshman of the Year in 2001. The one-time C-USA Player of the Month selection advanced to the NCAA Championship in 2001 after an 11th place finish in the West Regional. She was named to the NCAA East Regional team in 2002. Francella helped the Tigers win the C-USA Championship in 2001 by taking first place individually and also medaled at the Edwin Watts/Carolina Classic in 2001. Her 75.8 career average is the lowest ever at Memphis.
Hunt-McNeil (1993-97) is a two-time All-C-USA performer (1996, 1997) and was named the C-USA Player of the Year in 1997. She earned medalist honors in the 1997 C-USA Championship, helping Memphis take first place in the tournament. Hunt-McNeil competed in two NCAA East Regionals (1996, 1997) and was also an All-Great Midwest Conference team selection in 1994. She is inducted into the M-Club Hall of Fame at Memphis.
The C-USA All-Decade Team is led by former TCU star Brooke Tull, a three-time C-USA Player of the Year, who was named the Athlete of the Decade. The Women's Golf Coach of the Decade award was won by USF's Susan Holt, who has led the Bulls to five C-USA championships. Voting on the awards was done by each of the league's current women's golf coaches.
Tulane had the most selections on the All-Decade Team with three, while Memphis and USF each placed two members on the squad. East Carolina, TCU and UAB each had one representative on the team.
