MALIBU, Calif. - Taylore Karle of the Pepperdine's women's golf team capped off an outstanding freshman season by earning All-American second team honors from both Golfweek and the National Golf Coaches Association.

She led, or shared the team lead, in nine of 10 tournaments, and had four top 10 finishes and seven top 20 finishes. Karle was the co-medalist at the West Coast Conference Championships and was named to the All-WCC first team and WCC Freshman of the Year.
She ended the year ranked 15th nationally by Golfstat and 17th by Golfweek/Sagarin.
This is the ninth straight year that a Pepperdine women's golfer has earned All-American honors.
