Four from Women's Golf Receive All-Conference Honors
SAN FRANCISCO - The Pac-12 Conference announced their 2022 Women's Golf All-Conference teams and Sun Devil Women's Golf is well represented.
Arizona State landed four individuals on the Pac-12 All-Conference teams, tied for the second most selections of any school. The respect for the Maroon & Gold is clear, as this distinction is voted on by the other coaches in the league.
Alexandra Forsterling and Calynne Rosholt were two of only 12 golfers named to the First Team in arguably the deepest conference in the country. The program has now had at least one representative on the first team every year since 2005. It is the second consecutive year in which ASU has had two first team selections, a feat they have accomplished four times in the six years of the award in the Missy Farr-Kaye era.
Ashley Menne and Alessandra Fanali earned two of only eight spots on the Honorable Mention team, meaning 4 of the 20 possible All-Conference picks were Sun Devils. After landing five on the team last year, ASU has now combined for nine Pac-12 All-Conference honors over the past two seasons alone. Under Missy Farr-Kaye, 17 Sun Devils have made an All-Conference team, the second most in the conference during that span. This is the 20th time at least four from Arizona State have been honored with the distinction. A total of 134 Sun Devils have now earned a spot on an All-Conference Team since the award was established back in 1980, when ASU was still in the Western Collegiate Athletic Association.
"We are thrilled to announce that 4 of our Sun Devils have made an All Conference team," Coach Farr-Kaye remarked. "Alexandra and Calynne have earned first team with a terrific year up to this point! It is a great accolade for a senior about to graduate and a freshman who started off so strong. Alessandra & Ashley earned Honorable Mention. Both Ale and Ash have had outstanding spring seasons which helped them earn the honor. The Pac-12 Conference is the strongest conference in Women's golf, thus achieving these honors is truly a high achievement!"
