Four Lady Tigers Earn NGCA All-American Scholar Honors
July 7, 2010
The University of Memphis women's golf team had four of its members honored by the National Golf Coaches Association. Julia Hodgson (Unionville, Ontario), Kathleen Glavin (Dayton, Ohio), Marissa Steen (West Chester, Ohio), and Sarah Mathews (Memphis, Tenn.) were all named 2009-2010 All-American Scholars.
The award requires a minimum 3.50 cumulative GPA and the student-athlete must have competed in at least 50% of the team's regularly scheduled competitive rounds. The NGCA announced a total of 494 women's collegiate golfers in the three divisions to receive the honor.
Glavin, who is majoring in exercise and sports science and Steen, a sports and leisure management major, each received the distinction in 2009 as well. Glavin finished the 2009-10 season with a 79.0 scoring average and posted a low finish of fifth at the USA Lady Jaguar Classic.
Steen, who claimed medalist honors at USA Lady Jaguar Invitational, led Memphis with a scoring average of 76.3. She finished in the top-10 in six of 10 events in 2009-10, posting a low score of 69 in the second round of the Hurricane Invitational.
Hodgson and Mathews, both undecided majors, made immediate impacts upon joining the Lady Tiger golf squad. Mathews competed in all 10 events in 2009-10 and held a 79.3 scoring average. Hodgson competed in eight events and posted a low finish of seventh at 2010 C-USA Women’s Golf Championship.
