BELLE VERNON, Pa. - The 2012 PAC Women's Golf Spring Championship, a 36-hole event scheduled for April 23-24, 2012 at Cedarbrook Golf Course in Belle Vernon, Pa., has been cancelled due to poor weather/course conditions. As a result, the 2011-12 PAC golf team titles and postseason award winners have been determined exclusively by the 36-hole results of the 2011 PAC Fall Golf Invitational, which took place September 26-27, 2011 at Oak Tree Country Club in West Middlesex, Pa.
Westminster garnered its third PAC women's golf crown and its first since 2005, as the Titans fired a 36-hole fall total of 381-377-758. Westminster head coach Debi Roud has been named 2012 PAC Women's Golf Coach of the Year, her third of her career.
Earning All-PAC First Team honors for the Lady Titans was senior Pam Bonneau (McMurray, PA / Peters Township) who tied for fifth with a 183 (91-92). This is Bonneau's fourth First Team accolade or her career.
Earning All-PAC Second Team honors by placing in the top-10 for Westminster were freshman Morgan Pierce (Fredonia, PA / Reynolds) 186 (94-92), sophomore Jenna Huston (Beaver Falls, PA / Blackhawk) 193 (95-98), and junior Becca Shuster (Oil City, PA / Oil City) 196 (101-95). This marked Pierce's and Huston's first All-PAC honor of their career and Shuster's second.
