GAINESVILLE, Fla. – University of Florida senior Maria Torres was named a 2017 First Team All-American on Tuesday by the Women’s Golf Coaches Association (WGCA).

In addition, Kelly Grassel and Taylor Tomlinson were named Honorable Mention All-Americans.

Torres had a great senior season, recording seven top-10 finishes and three tournament wins.  Her 71.71 stroke average was the lowest single-season average in school history, breaking her own stroke average from last season.

Torres was named to the 2017 First Team All-Southeastern Conference. She finished in fourth place at the SEC Championship to help the Gators win the first SEC title since 2008.

This is the first time a Gator women’s golfer has been named a First Team All-American since Sandra Gal in 2007.

Grassel had six top-ten finishes with her most recent one coming at the SEC Championship, where she tied the tournament record with a collegiate-best 65 in the final round. Tomlinson took home the third collegiate win this season at the Northrop Grumman Regional Challenge.
