FRISCO, Texas -
Sophomore golfer Taylor Stockton has proven herself as the true definition of a student-athlete. The 2014 first-team All-Southland Conference honoree received more hardware earning Academic All-Southland honors announced league officials Tuesday afternoon.
"This is a well-deserved honor for Taylor," said head coach Brian White. "She works very hard on the course and in the classroom. Taylor is living proof that hard word pays off. The best part about this for us is that she is going to be around for two more years."
One of the Southland's top all-around golfers, Stockton was named to the All-SLC squad last month after helping guide the Lady Cardinals to their second-straight conference title, and berth in the NCAA regionals. One of the more dominant teams in conference history, the Lady Cardinals recorded four team titles and 10 top-five finishes during the 2013-14 season.
Stockton was named Southland Golfer of the Month after finishing as the team's top scorer at the first two tournaments of the season. She closed out the year posting five top-10 finishes, and two top-five marks. Stockton was also second on the team, and was among the league leaders, with a 75.9 stroke average. Her biggest highlight of the season came at the Cowgirl Classic where she recorded a hole-in-one, becoming the first female player to record an ace during tournament play on the Ak-Chin Southern Dunes Country Club course.
