The Southeastern Conference released its 2004 women’s golf postseason awards Friday with University of South Carolina senior Adrienne Gautreaux received First-Team All-SEC honors. Gautreaux received an Honorable Mention All-SEC nod in 2002 but this is her first time as a First-Team member.
Gautreaux leads the Gamecocks with a 74.67 stroke average and has played in all nine tournaments this year. She earned SEC Golfer of the Week back on March 19th for her back-to-back second place finishes in the LSU/Cleveland Classic and the Lady Gamecock Classic. She has fired four par-under-better rounds this season. Named as the captain by her teammates, Gautreaux is ranked 32nd in the country by GolfWeek and finished 20th in last weekend’s SEC Championships.
The Mabank, Texas native is also South Carolina’s nominee for the SEC Good Works Team for her community service efforts. In the last year, Gautreaux has volunteered for the Ronald McDonald Golf Tournament, assisted with the Harvest Hope Food Drive and helped collect stuffed animals for the South Carolina State Trooper Bear Drive. She visited Epworth Children’s Home to read and talk with the children and recently spoke to the Lexington Middle School Beta Club. Gautreaux also joined Lexington students at the OWLS Campsite. Last fall, Gautreaux participated in an asthma awareness meeting at Children’s Hospital.
In the classroom, Gautreaux was named to the President’s List last fall for achievements in her hotel, restaurant and tourism management graduate studies after graduating last spring with a bachelor’s degree in psychology. She is a two-time All-SEC Academic Honor Roll. Last summer, Gautreaux was invited to participate in an NCAA Student Leadership Workshop in Orlando, Florida.
