BEAUMONT – After earning First-Team All-Southland Conference honors this season, Lamar University senior Julie Aime and sophomore Nghi Ngo were automatic selections for the 2013 Southland Conference Women’s Golf All-Academic Team which was released by the league office Monday.

The duo helped Lamar win this year’s Southland Conference title and make its first NCAA Regional appearance since 1995. Lamar, which has won four Southland titles in women’s golf, won three other tournaments this year with Aime and Ngo leading the way.

Aime, a three-time all-conference selection, carries a 3.30 grade point average in communication. She led the Lady Cardinals with a 74.91 scoring average which was good enough for second in the conference and registered eight top-10 finishes on the year.

A native of Cannes, France, Aime picked up her third individual title this year with a win at the Louisiana-Monroe Fred Marx Invitational. Aime, who tied for eighth place at the conference tournament, has been named to Lamar’s President’s List for a perfect 4.00 GPA once and the Dean’s List twice for a GPA of 3.50 or higher.

Ngo is also a communication major and is sporting a 3.11 GPA. A native of Hochiminh City, Vietnam, Ngo was second on the team with a 75.50 strokes per round scoring average. Ngo won the McNeese State Le Triomphe Collegiate Invitational earlier this year for her first career individual title.

Ngo tied for fifth at the Southland Conference Tournament and was the Lady Cardinals’ top individual finisher three times this year. She was a member of the Southland Conference Commissioner’s Honor Roll as a freshman and has also been named to the Lamar Dean’s List.

Sam Houston State’s Shelby Hardy was named the Southland Conference Women’s Golf Student-Athlete of the Year. Also earning academic all-conference honors were Julia Roth of Central Arkansas and McKayla Anderson of McNeese State.


 

 

The all-academic teams are voted on by the head coaches, sports information directors and academic advisors from each Southland Conference university. Student-athletes must possess a 3.0 cumulative GPA, have completed one full academic year at the nominating institution and participated in at least 50 percent of the team's competition to qualify for the all-academic squad.
