RICHMOND, Ind. – Earlham College women's golf junior Hannah Toresdahl was named to the Women's Golf Coaches Association (WGCA) All-American Scholar team for 2018-19, when the list of honorees was unveiled Monday afternoon.
Toresdahl is the first Earlham women's golf student-athlete to earn WGCA All-American Scholar recognition in the three-year history of the program.
"Hannah has been an exemplary student-athlete for our women's program during her time at Earlham," said Matt Gehring, Earlham's head men's and women's golf coach. "What she has been able to accomplish, including this award, speaks volumes about her character and work ethic both on and off the course. We are proud of Hannah for being a great example to all of our student-athletes."
Toresdahl was one of only 15 student-athletes out of the Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference (HCAC) to receive the accolade, joining Hannah Sharkey and Mackenzie Black (Franklin); Emma Schrand, Sara Eads, Isabella Olthaus, Colleen Werbrich, and Patricia Windholtz (Mount St. Joseph); Rebecca Su, Lauren Conley, and Caitlin Coverstone (Rose-Hulman); and Lexie Lamar, Rachel Fine, Rebecca Fine, and Kelli Harpe (Transylvania).
