Joanne Lee Named NGCA All-American Honorable Mention
June 3, 2010
California Golden Bear women's golfer Joanne Lee was among the honorable mentions for All-American honors announced by the National Golf Coaches' Association. This is the second straight year that a Cal golfer has been an All-American honorable mention.
Lee finished the 2009-10 season with the lowest stroke average on the Cal squad, averaging 73.6 per round. She was the Bear's top finisher at the Pac-10 Championships, finishing in eighth place. She tied for individual medalist honors at the Peg Barnard Invitational, hosted by Stanford University, held earlier in the season.
This is the second consecutive season that a Cal golfer earned an All-American honorable mention from the NGCA after Pia Halbig did so in the 2008-09 season. In the program's history, Cal's Sarah Huarte was a first-team selection in 2003-04 and Vicki Lang was named to the second team in 2002-03. Lee is the ninth player to earn an honorable mention.
