Complete WGCA Award Winners

For the second consecutive season, Hollins University senior Elizabeth Cheng (Virginia Beach, VA) has been named All East Region as well as being named to the All American Team by the Women's Golf Coaches Association (WGCA).  The WGCA awards were announced at a banquet held during the 2014 NCAA DIII National Golf Tournament. 

The Women’s Golf Coaches Association, founded in 1983, is a non-profit organization representing women’s collegiate golf coaches. The WGCA was formed to encourage the playing of college golf for women in correlation with a general objective of education and in accordance with the highest tradition of intercollegiate competition. Today, the WGCA represents over 500 coaches throughout the U.S. and is dedicated to educating, promoting and recognizing both its members and the student-athletes they represent.

Cheng ended her stellar Hollins career as one of the most decorated student-athletes the college has ever seen.  The Old Dominion Athletic Conference only started to sponsor Women's Golf a season ago and Cheng has dominated the conference awards.  In addition to her pair of All ODAC first team selections, Cheng was named ODAC Women's Golfer of the Year, and has won numerous ODAC Women's Golfer of the Week awards.  She has been honored by the WGCA as a three time All East Region team member, 2013 second team All American, and 2014 honorable mention All American.  For her efforts, Cheng is the reigning, two time, Hollins Sportswoman of the Year.  

Not only has the stand out golfer excelled on the course, her work in the classroom had not gone unnoticed.  The ODAC has honored her as their
Women's Golf Scholar Athlete of the Year for the past two seasons and Cheng was named WGCA Scholar All American each of her four collegiate seasons.
