BIRMINGHAM, Ala.—Freshman Meg Callahan was voted the Southern Athletic Association Women's Golf Newcomer of the Year, the league office announced today.
Callahan also earned a spot on the All-Conference First Team and finished 10th at the SAA Conference Championship.
Callahan, from Gainesville, Ga., enjoyed a scintillating first-year campaign that saw her battle immediately with the top players in Division III. She played the entire season as the No. 1 player in only her first season of collegiate play, and proved to be a worthy adversary for all opponents. She compiled a 491-124 record, placing her in the top-20 of all Division III freshmen, and finished the season as the ninth-ranked player of all players in the Southern Athletic Association (SAA).
