USC seniors Alyaa Abdulghany and Allisen Corpuz, who helped lead USC to five wins in the 2021 season, including the Trojans' second straight Pac-12 title, have been been tabbed WGCA All-American honorable mention selections, it was announced Friday (May 28).

This is Corpuz's third All-American honor to go with a first team selection in 2020 and an honorable mention pick in 2018. For Abdulghany, it marks her third straight All-American honorable mention nod (2019-21).

Maybe USC's most consistent player during he four years at Troy, Abdulghany finished her career with a 72.91 stroke average, 14th best in school history, after a team-best 72.64 stroke average as a senior.

She was the lone Trojan to play all four rounds at the 2021 NCAA Championships, tying for 36th including a third-round 69, her ninth round in the 60s of her career (tied for 15th most in program history).

Abdulghany posted four top 10s and six top 13s in nine starts in 2021 with 11 rounds of par or better, including seven under par.

Her 6-under 210 at The Gold Rush was her most under par as a Trojan and her mid-season streak of three straight tournaments of par or better was also her USC best.

Corpuz posted a pair of wins as part of an incredible start to her senior season, posting six straight top 4 finishes, the best at USC in two decades.

A 2021 ANNIKA Award finalist, she led USC in rounds in the 60s (six), rounds of par or better (15) and rounds under par (14), all career best efforts.

Corpuz, who reached No. 1 in the Golfweek rankings in mid-April, finished her career with 16 rounds in the 60s, fourth most in program history. Her 14 rounds under par are USC's most since Annie Park had 19 and Kyung Kim had 18 in 2014. Her career average of 72.90 is 13th best on USC's career list.

Set to play in the 2021 Arnold Palmer Cup, Corpuz's wins at the Lamkin San Diego Invitational and The Gold Rush gave her three career 54-hole wins.
 
Both Abdulghany and Corpuz competed at the 2021 Augusta National Women's Amateur, the second time for both. Corpuz made the cut for the second time, tying for 13th.
