Rams rake in SAC Awards: Schies named 4-time SAC Player of the Year
The Sooner Athletic Conference has announced its 2018 Women’s Golf All-Conference team and individual award winners. The SAC Champion Lady Rams notched two All-Conference players and swept the individual Player, Coach and Freshman of the Year awards.
All-Conference distinction was reserved for only the top-five players in the league as voted upon by the SAC’s nine head coaches.
Alex Schies made history by becoming a four-time SAC Player of the Year. She currently leads the NAIA with a season scoring average of 73.86, which if the season ended today, would best her own school record (75.54) by nearly two strokes. In nine tournaments this season, Schies has finished in the top-5 seven times including four wins, winning back-to-back tournaments on two separate occasions. Over the weekend, she won her second consecutive SAC Individual Championship while leading the Rams to their first title. It was the eighth career tournament victory for the three-time 1st-team NAIA All-American selection.
Trudy Allen joined Schies on the All-Conference team while Kevin Millikan was named SAC Coach of the Year for the second time and Emily Hunt was named SAC Freshman of the Year.
