Daytona Beach, Fla. - Rookie Misun Cho, who recorded the sixth-best single-season stroke average in Pepperdine history, was named a second team All-American by the National Golf Coaches Association (NGCA), the organization announced at its 2007 Division I Awards Banquet Friday night in Daytona Beach, Florida.

Cho, along with sophomore Jayvie Agojo, was also named to the NCAA West Region team after helping the Waves to a seventh place finish at the qualifying tournament in Tempe, Arizona, on May 12. Agojo tied for 10th at the 54-hole event.

In her first season at Pepperdine, Cho led the Waves with a 73.30 stroke average, produced six Top 10 finishes and captured individual medalist honors at the Northrop Grumman Regional Challenge and West Coast Conference (WCC) Championships. She also finished fifth at the NCAA West Regional Championships and was tied for eighth heading into the final round of the NCAA Championships that concluded on Friday.

Cho's selection marks the 11th time since 2000 that a Pepperdine player has been recognized as a first or second team All-American by the NGCA. A Waves player has been named All-American for eight straight years.

Pepperdine concluded its 2006-07 season with a seventh place showing at the NCAA Championships that concluded Friday. It marked the fifth Top 10 finish in the last five appearances for the Waves and seventh overall.
