Brooks Earns WGCA All-American Honors for Second Year in a Row

The Women’s Golf Coaches Association (WGCA) Second Team and Honorable Mention All-Americans were announced today, after the First Team selections were announced earlier in the week at the NCAA Women’s Golf Championships.

Junior Sierra Brooks earned herself a spot on the Second Team after finishing runner-up at the Championships, behind WGCA Player of the year Maria Fassi. Brooks continues to improve as she was named a WGCA All-American Honorable Mention last year. This is the fourth consecutive season Florida has had a player garner WGCA All-American honors.

In addition to All-American honors, Brooks took home All-SEC recognition when she was voted as a second team member for the second year in a row earlier this month.

The criteria used to determine the WGCA All-American Teams include:
• Head-to-head competition
• Comparison with common opponents
• Scoring average
• Place finishes in regular season events and tournament wins
