PROVO, Utah — After one of the most successful seasons in program history and placing first at the West Coast Conference Championship, No. 36 BYU women's golf head coach Carrie Roberts and three players received All-WCC honors, Thursday.
Roberts was named WCC Coach of the Year as she helped lead the Cougars to a conference championship and four regular season tournament wins in the 2015-16 season. The four regular season wins tied for the most in program history. BYU women's golf also won a head-to-head match against Colorado State in February.
The WCC also named Rose Huang the Player of the Year and Co-Freshman of the Year. She was also named to the All-WCC first team along with teammates Lea Garner and Kendra Dalton.
In the 2015-16 season, Huang had four top-5 and six top-10 finishes. Her best finish was at the Rainbow Wahine Invitational where she took first place individually. Huang shot 5 under at the Rainbow Wahine Invitational, shooting a 69 in round two.
At the WCC Championship Wednesday, Huang tied for second place with Garner. Huang and Garner both shot 3 over in the tournament.
This season Garner recorded two top-5 and top-10 finishes. Garner helped BYU women's golf to a first place finish at the BYU at Entrada Classic as she placed third, shooting 3 over.
Dalton's consistent play helped the Cougars record key wins in the fall season. She placed second at both the Rose City Intercollegiate as well as the Aggie Invitational. Dalton also placed in the top 10 at the Rainbow Wahine Invitational.
