Mahon named to SEC Good Works Team

FAYETTEVILLE — University of Arkansas senior golfer Courtney Mahon was named to the Southeastern Conference Good Works team the league announced today. Mahon, a senior from Topeka, Kan., leads the ninth-ranked Lady Razorbacks into action this weekend at the SEC Championship hosted by Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tenn. "Courtney works very hard on and off the golf course," said head coach Kelley Hester. "Courtney has a great awareness for those around her and really enjoys giving back to the community. This is a great award for her to win and I’m proud of her accomplishments." Mahon is a member of the AAO Champions of Character. She works with the St. Vincent de Paul Society, where she helps the underprivileged by serving food at homeless shelters and by helping the elderly through various home improvements. She volunteers at the Yvonne Richardson Center and helped serve food on Thanksgiving. Mahon has also assisted in the preparation of food for the homeless for other organizations. In addition, Mahon is a member of the Sweat Hogs, an organization that encourages physical fitness at Happy Hollow Elementary School. She has helped with the Girl Scouts Golf Clinic, Girls and Women in Sports Day, worked golf clinics for “Fore” Arkansas Women’s Golf, and has taken part in the First Tee of Fort Smith Christmas Clinic. Mahon has also volunteered at Grandview Manor, which involved wrapping Christmas gifts and spending time with Alzheimer and psych unit patients. She is a member of the Razorbacks for Christmas, a program that adopts families for the holidays, and has helped with the Boys and Girls Club Putt Putt. The Lady Razorbacks tee off at 9:15 a.m., Friday along with fourth-ranked Georgia and No. 5 Auburn at the SEC Championship. Arkansas finished third last year, just one stroke out of first place and a playoff for the win. Then-freshman Stacy Lewis won the individual title for the Lady’Backs.
