OGDEN, Utah — Weber State golfer Kaceelyn Pouttu was recently awarded All-Big Sky Honorable Mention status as the conference released its women's golf season honors.
Pouttu produced a stroke average of 75.7 over 10 tournaments this season. She posted six finishes inside the top-20, including starting the season with five-straight top-20's. Four of those five top-20 finishes were in the top-8.
Her top finish of the season came at the Santa Clara Colby Invitational, where she shot rounds of 75, 75 and 77 for a fifth-place finish.
Northern Arizona's Sofia Anokhina was named the Player of the Year. Anokhina was joined on the All-Big Sky First Team by Southern Utah's Kamonwan (Poy) Prasurtwong, who was named Freshman of the Year, Idaho's Sophie Hausmann and Michelle Kim, and Sacramento State’s Julia Becker.
The Big Sky Conference used a new system to determine the all-conference list in 2016-17, using rankings. The teams and awards were selected following the conclusion of the regular season, using a points system based on the Golfstat National Ranking, the Golf Week National Ranking and the adjusted score to par provided by Golfstat.
The five lowest point totals were named to the First Team, the next five lowest were named to the Second Team, the next five lowest were named to the Third Team and five more were named Honorable Mention. The player who posted the lowest score earned Player of the Year honors, while the freshman player who posted the lowest score earned the Freshman of the Year honors.
