Lewis McCurdy earn all-America honors

FAYETTEVILLE – University of Arkansas golfers Amanda McCurdy and Stacy Lewis earned National Golf Coaches Association honorable mention all-America honors. The duo paced the 10th-ranked Lady Razorbacks to a program-best 10th-place finish this week at the 2006 NCAA Women’s Golf Championship in Columbus, Ohio, and both were voted onto the all-America squad. Lewis, a sophomore from The Woodlands, Texas, carded a school and Scarlet Course record 66 in the final round of the national championship finishing tied for ninth overall. She posted a four-round 294 with rounds of 76-76-76-66. Lewis finished the year with a team-leading 74.32 stroke average and played in all 11 of Arkansas’ events. The selection is her second, as she earned first-team honors last year after leading Arkansas to the program’s first-ever NCAA appearance. McCurdy, perhaps one of the best know faces of Lady Razorback golf, makes her first appearance on the all-America team. The El Dorado, Ark., native became the first multiple event winner, the first Southeastern Conference Golfer of the Week and the first all-SEC selection in the program’s history. McCurdy shot a 301 in her second National Championship appearance and finished the year second on the Arkansas roster with a 74.65 stroke average. The senior graduates as one of the most highly decorated golfers in the program’s history. For more information about Arkansas golf, log on to LADYBACKS. COM.
