BEAUMONT – After placing in the top 20 in all 10 tournaments this year, and adding her second career victory, Lamar junior golfer Julie Aime was rewarded Monday by being named to the All-Southland Conference Second-Team.

A native of Cannes, France, Aime won the Ladyjack Crown Classic on March 6 for her first individual title since her freshman season. Aime is tied for seventh in the conference in scoring average at 76.0 strokes per round. She tied for ninth at last week’s Southland Conference Championship as Lamar finished third as a team.

Aime was the Lady Cardinals’ top finisher in five tournaments this season, and placed in the top 10 in five events on the year. She matched her career-best round by firing a 69 at the Insperity Lady Jaguar Intercollegiate hosted by Augusta State.

Aime, who was the top vote getter on the second-team, was joined by Julia Roth of Central Arkansas, Taylor Newlin and Paola Valerio of UTSA and Texas State’s Lejan Lewthwaite. This is the second straight year that Aime has been named to the Southland’s second-team.

UTSA, which successfully defended its team title at the Southland Tournament, placed two golfers on the first-team in Golfer of the Year Fabiola Arriaga and SLC individual medalist Shannon Jungman. Rounding out the first-team were Krista Puisite and Iman Nordin of Texas State and Shelby Hardy of Sam Houston State.

After leading the Roadrunners to the conference tournament title, Carrie Parnaby was recognized as Coach of the Year. Nordin was named Freshman of the Year and Krista Fenniak of Texas A&M-Corpus Christi got the nod for Newcomer of the Year.
