Golfweek Names Price, Go, All-Americans
COLUMBIA, S.C. – South Carolina women’s golf student-athletes Lois Kaye Go and Emily Price have been named All-Americans by Golfweek, the organization announced on Friday. The honor is the third of Go’s career, and the second-straight season she has been named an All-American by Golfweek.
Go, who was named as an honorable mention, is the seventh Gamecock to garner All-America honors in multiple seasons. She completed her junior campaign with a scoring average of 72.82, the eighth-best single-season scoring average in program history. She currently holds the career scoring average record at 72.63, and has five top-5 career finishes, including four during the 2018-19 season. Throughout the season Go was repeatedly named on the ANNIKA Award Watch List, the award for the nation’s top women’s collegiate golfer.
Off the course, Go was awarded with the SEC Scholar Athlete of the Year award and was named to the SEC Community Service team. She was also an at-large selection to the 2019 Google Cloud Academic All-America Team.
Price, who was named on the Third Team, is the first freshman in program history to earn multiple All-America honors in her first campaign. In her rookie campaign, Price was one of the most consistent performers for the Gamecocks. She ended the season with the lowest freshman scoring average in program history with a team-best 72.81. That same mark is the seventh-best scoring average in program history. Her performance throughout the season earned her Second Team All-SEC honors, while also being named Carolina’s first SEC Freshman of the Year. The awards piled up for Price during the season, as she earned SEC Freshman of the Week in April and was named to the SEC All-Freshman Team. Price had her best finish in her postseason debut, completing the 2019 SEC Championships in a tie for fifth.
The Gamecocks, who closed their 2018-19 campaign ranked No. 12 by Golfstat, have now boasted multiple All-America honorees in each of the last six years under head coach Kalen Anderson.
