IRVING, Texas -University of Memphis women's golf team senior Marissa Steen was named First Team All-Conference USA, the league announced. This is the second consecutive season Steen has earned the honor.
"I am so proud of Marissa not only for all she has accomplished in golf but also for earning a 3.95 GPA and representing the university," Memphis head coach Beth Harrelson said. "She has been the ideal student athlete."
