Kees and Cabush Named All-Conference in Inaugural American Athletic Conference Season of Women's Golf

May 1, 2014

PROVIDENCE, R.I. - The American Athletic Conference announced its end of the season women's golf awards for the 2013-14 season Thursday morning, with junior Ashley Kees and freshman Leighann Cabush both being named All-Conference.

Kees finished the American Athletic Conference Championship tournament with a 228 (+12) which put her in sixth place, only 11 strokes behind the winner. Cabush finished one stroke behind Kees at 229 (+13), tying her for seventh place.

Cabush had two top-5 finishes during the 2013-14 season, including taking him the individual title at the USA Women's Invitational, helping the Tigers to the win as a team. Kees had her best finish of her career during the 2010-11 season, when she finished in second place at the Lady Eagle Invitational. Her top finish during the 2013-14 season includes a pair of 11th place finishes prior to the conference tournament.

"I'm extremely pleased at how well Leighann and Ashley played this year, although I'm not at all surprised" said head coach Beth Harrelson. "For Leighann to come in and play at that level as a freshman speaks volumes to her future as a Tigers and how Ashley played during the year and especially at the conference tournament shows how strong the upperclassmen leadership is with this team moving into next year."
