AUBURN - For her efforts this season, Auburn junior Marta Sanz was named to the Women's Golf Coaches Association Honorable Mention All-America Team on Wednesday. Sanz earns the honor for the second year in a row.
"I am so proud of Marta and how she played all year," said Auburn head coach Kim Evans. "She did a great job of stepping up and leading in what turned out to be a tough year and I think she is very deserving of this honor."
The All-America honor is the second of Sanz's career, but marks the 19th straight year that Auburn has had at least one All-American.
A native of Madrid, Spain, Sanz tallied a team-best 74.18 stroke average on the season. She led Auburn in six of the team's 12 tournaments on the year and tallied six top-20 finishes, including four top-10s. Sanz also led the Tigers to a sixth-place finish at the NCAA Championship, the team's best finish in eight years, while tying for 10th individually.
Her best finish of the season came at the Liz Murphey Fall Preview where she tied for third with a 3-under 213. Of the 33 rounds she played during the season, 32 counted toward the team score. She also tallied nine sub-par rounds with eight of those in the 60s.
