Go Named To Academic All-America First Team
COLUMBIA, Texas – South Carolina women’s golf rising-senior Lois Kaye Go has been named a 2019 Google Cloud Academic All-American as a part of its at-large teams, announced by CoSIDA on Friday. The honor is the highest earned by a women’s golfer at South Carolina since Adrienne Gautreaux in 2004.
Go adds the honor to her already long list of accomplishments during her historic junior season. A native of Cebu City, Philippines, Go capped off the 2018-19 season by being named a Women’s Golf Coaches Association All-American. She completed the 2018-19 campaign with a scoring average of 72.82, the eighth-best single-season scoring average in program history. She helped Team International win the 2019 Arnold Palmer Cup in early June and was a gold medalist at the 2018 Asian Games. As a member of the All-SEC First Team, Go finished fifth at the SEC Championships and had her best finish at the Allstate Sugar Bowl, where she finished in third.
Off the course, Go was awarded the SEC Scholar Athlete of the Year and was named to the SEC Community Service team.
The at-large teams for the Google Cloud Academic All-America program include the sports of fencing, golf, gymnastics, ice hockey, lacrosse, rifle, skiing, swimming & diving, tennis and water polo for both men and women, as well as beach volleyball, bowling, field hockey and rowing for women, and volleyball and wrestling for men.
