FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – University of Arkansas junior-to-be Gabriela Lopez earned Golfweek First-Team All-America honors while teammates Emily Tubert and Regina Plasencia were honorable mention selections it was announced Tuesday.

Lopez, a Mexico City, Mexico, native, was one of 10 first-team selections and one of two from the Southeastern Conference.  It is her second selection to the Golfweek team after she earned honorable mention honors as a freshman.

Success continued for Lopez in her second season of college golf in 2013-14. She opened with a 215 to tie for 17th at the NCAA Preview shooting 72-73-70 against one of the toughest fields of the fall. Lopez went two-under with 72-68 in the rain-shortened Mercedes Benz to tie for second and was one-under with a 215 at the Ruth's Chris Tar Heel Invitational to tie for eighth.  Lopez remained under par with a three-under 213 with rounds of 73-68-72 to tie for seventh overall at the Alamo Invitational as she played the four fall events one-under.

Her success continued in the spring with Lopez picked up a third-place finish in Puerto Rico and winning the stroke play title at the Liz Murphey Collegiate.  She also rallied winning a one-hole playoff at LSU for the individual title helping Arkansas to the team title.  Lopez went into the SEC Championship playing well and finished tied for second overall at the league event with a one-over 217 at Greystone.  She capped the season at the NCAA Central Regional carding a 71 in the second round finishing with five birdies in the final six holes.

Lopez was selected to the SEC First-Team, her second All-SEC honor, and finished the year with a team-best 72.85 stroke average and she has a 72.87 career average.

Tubert, a Burbank, Calif., native, was honored for the second time in her career after she earned third-team honors as a junior.  It is Plasencia’s first selection to the Golfweek All-America team.

The trio of players will all converge on Northwest Arkansas in a few short weeks for the Walmart NW Arkansas LPGA Championship at Pinnacle Country Club.  Plasencia joins Razorback teammate Summar Roachell in the Monday qualifier while Lopez and Tubert received sponsor’s exemptions and are part of the field beginning play Friday.
