Meg Callahan named SAA Women's Golf Newcomer of the Year

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).
