The 2014-15 Hollins golf team enters the fall season with a young roster seeking to gain tournament experience at the collegiate level before the ultra-competitive spring season arrives.
Reigning ODAC Women’s Golf Rookie of the Year Shannon Ciccarello '17 is the new leader of the program following the graduation of Elizabeth Cheng '14, one of the most prolific golfers in Hollins history. In addition to her recognition as the conference’s best new golfer, Shannon earned Second Team All Conference honors and was named an All American Scholar by the WGCA. She finished in the top half of every tournament field in which she competed, including a second-place finish in her final regular season event. She is poised to improve in her second full college season.
Hollins is breaking in a pair of newcomers this fall while competing in three different events. The season kicks off with the ODAC Preview in late September, followed by the Washington and Lee Fall Invitational and the Bridgewater Invitational in October.
The 2013-14 edition of the Hollins golf team featured just two golfers ready for competition. But, what Hollins lacked in numbers they made up for with talent.
Elizabeth Cheng '14 completed her final season with a second place finish at the ODAC Championships. She was selected as First Team All-ODAC and earned ODAC Women's Golf Scholar Athlete of the Year honors for the second consecutive season. The Women's Golf Coaches Association (WGCA) recognized Cheng as an All-American Scholar for the fourth time in her illustrious career.
Shannon Ciccarello '17 posted a tremendous first season. For her efforts, she was named Second Team All-ODAC and took home the 2014 ODAC Women's Golf Rookie of the Year award. Like Cheng, she was selected as an All-American Scholar by the WGCA.
Next season, Hollins will field a young, talented group that will look to once again compete for an ODAC Championship.
