"Carrie Cole" Effort Award - Kaitlyn Rohrback
Weight Room Award - Erica Popson
Leadership Award - Sara Monberg
Freshman Letter Awards - Katilyn Rohrback, Chessey Thomas
Sophomore Letter Awards - Leigh Henderson, Erica Popson, Sara Monberg
Junior Letter Award - Nathalie Mansson

We just finished up the season at the NCAA Championship hosted by Texas A&M in College Station. It was a very good event and the Lady Vols had some highs and lows to end the season! We finished the tournament in 13th place, which was disappointing because after two rounds we were in 8th. On a high note Erica Popson was named to the West Region team and also was named a First Team All-American. Although not official yet, both Kaitlyn Rohrback and Sara Monberg will be named Academic All-Americans for their performance on the course and in the classroom. And Chessey Thomas saved her best for last, she shot a final round 68 for her lowest round of the season by 4 shots! We also celebrated Nathalie's 22nd birthday at Texas Roadhouse and they did a good job embarrassing her for us!
All of the players have headed home, so things are quiet on the Tennessee campus! Looking forward to a relaxing summer before we get back to work!

We traveled across the country to the West Regional hosted by the University of Washington. The Lady Vols stepped up and got the job done finishing second in a tough regional field! Erica managed her 5th 1st place finish of the year - are you kidding me??
We also made a stop at IKEA which was a thrill for Sara and Nathalie!
After the redeye back to Knoxville, the girls finished up final exams and will compete for the National Championship hosted by Texas A&M! GO LADY VOLS!
