Sanz earns third straight All-SEC selection

May 2, 2014

AUBURN, Ala. – Auburn senior Marta Sanz earned her third straight all-conference selection after being named to the All-SEC Second Team, the league office announced on Friday.

Sanz, a native of Madrid, Spain, leads Auburn in stroke average at 73.23. The senior has recorded four top-10 finishes and finished first at the AllState Sugar Bowl Intercollegiate back in February in New Orleans. She also leads the team with six sub-par rounds, including two in the 60s.

The senior is coming off an eighth-place finish at the SEC Women’s Golf Championships, where she carded a three-day total of 4-over 220 at the Greystone Golf and Country Club in Hoover, Ala.

Sanz is the first Tiger since Cydney Clanton (2008-11) to earn three straight selections to the All-SEC team.

The Auburn women’s golf team returns to action starting May 8 at the NCAA East Regional in Tallahassee, Fla. The three-day tournament runs through May 10 with the top-eight teams advancing to the NCAA Women’s Golf Championships in Tulsa, Okla.
