ETSU women’s golf dominates All A-Sun postseason honors

Wednesday, April 23, 2014

MACON, Ga. (April 23, 2014) – Fresh off a second straight Atlantic Sun Conference Championship run, the good new keeps coming for the ETSU women’s golf team.

On Wednesday, the Atlantic Sun Conference announced its all-league selections, and the Buccaneers were certainly well represented. Sophomore Vivienne Chin (Kota Kinabalu, Sabah Malaysia) and junior Gabriella Wahl (Heidenheim, Germany) were both first-team honorees, while senior Sian Evans (Gillingham, England) was a second team pick, and freshman Linda Dobele (Ogre, Latvia) was selected to the all-freshman team.

Meanwhile, ETSU head coach Stefanie Shelton was named the A-Sun Coach of the Year after leading the Bucs to their second-straight championship. This is the fourth time – second consecutive – Shelton has been named Coach of the Year in the Atlantic Sun Conference. She was also named Coach of the Year once during her time in the Southern Conference. The Bucs finished in the top-eight in every tournament this season, including a win at the Lady Pirate Intercollegiate and third place finish at the Palmetto Intercollegiate to go along with their A-Sun title.

Chin, one of three unanimous selections, won the Atlantic Sun Championship medalist honor and posted four top-10 finishes this year. Wahl, a three-time first team selection, led the Bucs in stroke average at 74.5, including a season-low round of 68 at the UCF Challenge. She joins Laura Jansone (Jurmala, Latvia) as the only ETSU players to be selected three times to the All-Conference First Team. In addition, Evans becomes the 18th player in A-Sun history to be selected to four A-Sun All-Conference teams, while Dobele garnered her first league recognition.

The Bucs are now awaiting word on where they will play in the NCAA Regionals. Those pairings will be announced next week. For more on ETSU women’s golf throughout the postseason, visit and click on the women’s golf link.
