Three Cougar Golfers Named All-Pac-10
May 2, 2001
Browner, a junior from Tarzana, Calif., is only the second Cougar woman to be named to the All-Pac-10 team. She led her team with a 76.7 stroke average and fired a 67 and 209 to break the school record for single round and tournament scoring. Browner will compete in the NCAA West Regional as an individual on May 10-12.
'I'm proud of this award,' Browner said. 'I think it's great for our program and says a lot for Cougar golf.'
Pac-10 Champion Lorena Ochoa of Arizona was named the Pac-10 freshman of the year, while California's Nancy McDaniel was the coach of the year.
Reehoorn capped his season off with an 18th place finish at the Pac-10 Championship, but it was his consistency over the last nine months that earned him a spot on the all- conference team. The junior from Burlington, Wash., finished in the top 10 in four events, and paced WSU with a 73.4 average.
White was the third Cougar selected to the team. The Pueblo West, Colo., native began his season by breaking the single round school record with a 65 in the Northwest Classic. White, who is only a sophomore, matched Reehoorn with four top 10 appearances, including a tie for ninth at the Pac-10 Championship. He is the youngest player from Washington State to be named to the All-Pac-10 team.
'Last year was a year of experience for me,' White said. 'This year I knew I could play with anybody. Being so young, and coming off a rough year, honorable mention is not something that I thought would happen. It hasn't really sunk in yet.'
Arizona State's Jeff Quinney and Arizona's Ricky Barnes were the co-players of the year. USC's Hunter Mahan was the Pac-10 freshman of the year.
Jennifer Dodd was named All-Pac-10 in 2000, while the last player from the men's team to be selected to the conference team was Jeremy Champoux in 1999.
