Mackenzie Earns First-Team All-America Recognition

June 6, 2006

Seattle - Golfweek Magazine has named Washington senior golfer Paige Mackenzie to its All-America first-team, it was announced today. The Yakima, Wash., native joins nine others on Golfweek's first team.

In 2006 Mackenzie put together the best postseason in UW women's golf history. It began at the Pac-10 Championship, where she became the first Husky to win the Pac-10 title, shooting 5-under 211, the second-lowest 54-hole score in Pac-10 Championship history. Two weeks later at the NCAA West Regional, Mackenzie bested the 108-player field by eight strokes, shooting a school record-breaking 8-under 208 for the tournament to earn her second straight victory. At the NCAA Championship, her final tournament as a Husky, she placed eighth, the best individual NCAA finish in UW history, and helped the team to a record-tying sixth-place team finish. She finished the 2006 season with a scoring average of 72.8, breaking her own school record by nearly a full stroke. She is also the Husky record-holder with 22 career Top-10 finishes and 139 career rounds played. Last week Mackenzie was selected to represent the USA at the 2006 Curtis Cup.
