            MACON, Ga. (May 6, 2008) - Having made history earlier this month with the program's first ever conference championship and a trip to the NCAAs, the ETSU women's golf team received more good news on Tuesday as the squad learned that the Atlantic Sun Conference named head coach Stefanie Shelton the league's coach of the year and sophomore Laura Jansone (Jurmala, Latvia) was selected first team all-conference.

 

            Jansone was an unanimous first-team selection and is a repeat first-team performer. Jansone captured the Medalist honor at the Atlantic Sun Women's Golf Championship, highlighted by a tournament-record and school-record 67 in the first round. At the A-Sun Championship, ETSU placed all five of its golfers inside the top 10 and their balance showed itself again as three in addition to Jansone earned All-Conference honors. Seniors Natalia Giraldo (Cali, Colombia) and Maria Ringdahl (Farjestaden, Sweden), and sophomore Sinead O'Sullivan (Galway, Ireland) made up three-fifths of the A-Sun's Second Team. Giraldo tied for fifth at the A-Sun Championship, while Ringdahl and O'Sullivan shared seventh. O'Sullivan also won the South Alabama Lady Jaguar Invitational in March.

 

            Meanwhile, Shelton earned her first outright Coach of the Year award, after having shared that honor with Campbell's John Crooks in 2007. Jansone was one of three sophomores to make the First Team and all five of the 2007 All-Freshmen team made either the First or Second Team in 2008.
