West Coast Conference Releases 2016-17 All-WCC Women's Golf Team


April 25, 2017

SAN BRUNO, Calif. -- After hosting another compelling West Coast Conference Championship last week at the Riverside Country Club in Provo, Utah, the league is pleased to unveil its All-WCC team and major award winners. All WCC First Team selection and each major individual award winners were selected solely by the five conference head coaches. 

For the second straight year, WCC Champion No. 27 BYU captured two of the three major postseason honors. Junior Kendra Dalton is the second Cougar to earn WCC Player of the Year honors (Rose Huang, 2016). Dalton is the WCC's top-rated player at No. 81, according to GolfStat.com and she posted a win at the Juli Inkster Spartan Invite to go along with three runner-up showings. 

BYU head coach Carrie Roberts earns WCC Coach of the Year honors for the second straight season after guiding the Cougars to a remarkable season. BYU never posted a team finish outside the top-five in any tournament, won four events and posted six runner-up finishes.

Pepperdine's Momoka Kobori earned WCC Freshman of the Year accolades and posted a pair of top-10 finishes in her rookie season for the Waves. Kobori is the 15th Pepperdine student-athlete to capture top freshman honors. 

Seven upperclassmen appear on the All-WCC First Team, with just two seniors. BYU and Pepperdine led the way with three selections apiece, while Gonzaga placed two on the first team. All five programs placed at least one on the team. 

Nine of the 10 first team selections have made multiple appearances, headlined by Gonzaga senior Ciera Min, who makes her fourth appearance. BYU senior Alex White, the 2017 WCC Tournament medalist, is on the squad for the third time.
