Blugold Women's Golfers Dominate All-WIAC Team
By: Kevin Meinholz, Sports Information Director
MADISON, Wis. (UWECBlugolds.com) - Seven UW-Eau Claire women's golfers have been named to the All-Wisconsin Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (WIAC) team, conference sports information director Matt Stanek announced today.
Three Blugolds received first team honors while four were second team selections out of 10 total selections. The squad was determined based on Golfstat's rankings of lowest stroke average versus par following the conclusion of the WIAC Championship.
Katie Maurer (So.-Forest Lake, Minn./Convent of the Visitation), Emily Swift (So.-Onalaska, Wis.) and Catherine Wagner (Fr.-Austin, Minn.) were all first team selections.
Maurer led Eau Claire at the WIAC Championship where she captured her second straight individual title as the Blugolds won the conference crown. She finished the fall season with an average of 77.7 strokes per round, the second best average in the WIAC.
Wagner finished tied for third at the WIAC Championship and holds a 79.5 strokes per round average, third best in the conference. Emily Swift finished tied for sixth at the WIAC Championship and has an 82.1 stroke per round average.
Securing four of the five spots on this year's All-WIAC second team were Jamie Hauser (So.-Hartland, Wis./Arrowhead), Torie Ives (Sr.-Osseo, Wis./Osseo-Fairchild), Sara Mattes (So.-La Crosse, Wis./Central) and Katie Swift (Jr.-Onalaska, Wis.), who also earned recognition on the conference's All-Sportsmanship Team.
WIAC Player of the Year went to Stevens Point's Jessica Urban, who led the conference with 77.4 strokes per round while Stout's Howie Samb was named Coach of the Year.
The Blugolds will be back in action next spring.
