Schreefel Earns All-American Honor
May 23, 2005
USC freshman Dewi-Claire Schreefel, who only joined the Women of Troy in January, was named an NCAA All-American second-team selection on Friday (May 20) at the conclusion of the NCAA Championships.
Schreefel was among the individual leaders throughout the duration of the NCAA Championships, finishing tied for 10th at 292 (+8), only six strokes out of first place.
Schreefel was USC's highest finisher in the last four tournaments - the Ping Invitational, the Pac-10 Championships, NCAA Championships West Region and NCAA Championships finals. She was also the second-highest individual in the three previous matches leading up to that run- the Northrup Grumman Regional Challenge, the Lady Puerto Rico Classic and the UNLV Spring Invitational.
She finished as USC's top golfer by round, averaging 74.23 strokes per 18 holes in seven tournaments. Though she didn't break 70 in any tournament, her consistently solid play enabled her to have the lowest bogeys per round average (3.91) on the team, 41st lowest in the nation.
Schreefel is USC's 14th All-American and first since Irene Cho earned second team honors as a sophomore in 2004.
