Women's Golfer Named Honorable Mention All-America
June 2, 1998
LUBBOCK, Texas - Texas Tech University junior golfer Brooke Lowrance (Snyder, Texas) has been named Honorable Mention All-America by the National Golf Coaches Association.
Lowrance was one of only two Red Raider golfers to play in all 10 tournaments this season. She led Texas Tech with a 75.4 stroke average while finishing in the top 10 six times and in the top 20 on seven occasions. Lowrance tied for seventh at the Big 12 Conference Championships and posted a season-best finish of a tie for third at the New Mexico State Diet Coke-Roadrunner Invitational.
"It's a pretty high reward," Lowrance said. "It sets a standard to achieve a higher goal for next season."
Oklahoma's Isabelle Blais was also named Honorable Mention All-America. Lowrance will attend summer school and play in several tournaments, including an event in South Africa in August.
"Brooke has had an outstanding year," said Texas Tech Director of Golf Jeff Mitchell. "Certainly, I'm very excited. She is my first All-American. It's only a tribute to how hard she has worked. She is really a student of the game.
"Every day when she goes to the golf course, she is trying to learn something new. That's all you can ask for out of a golfer. She's really kept a good attitude when she's playing good or when she's not."
