Three Players Earn All-America Honors

May 26, 2005

Three players from the second-ranked UCLA women's golf team earned All-America honors from the National Golf Coaches Assn., the association announced today.

Senior Charlotte Mayorkas earned 1st Team All-America honors for the third straight year. She became the only female golfer in UCLA history to earn first-team honors three straight years.

Named to the second-team were freshman Amie Cochran and junior Susie Mathews. Mathews earned first-team honors in 2004.

'We're extremely proud of Charlotte, Susie and Amie for making the All-America team,' said Head Coach Carrie Forsyth. 'They all deserved it because they each had phenomenal seasons.'

Mayorkas finished her UCLA career with five tournament victories, a 73.6 career stroke average, 17 Top 10 finishes and 30 Top 20 finishes. Over ninety percent of her scores were counters in team scoring. She tied for 14th individually at the NCAA Championships in 2005 and finished fourth last year.

On Monday, she turned professional prior to advancing to sectional qualifying for the U.S. Women's Open, June 23-26.

Mathews, a two-time NGCA Scholar All-American, led the Bruins this year with 11 sub-par rounds. On Wednesday, she earned Second-Team At-Large CoSIDA Academic All-America honors.

Cochran, who tied for third place at the 2005 NCAA Tournament after firing a final round 68, led the Bruins with nine Top 20 finishes and tied for the team lead with seven Top 10s. Her scoring average of 73.2 ranked second on the team.
