Foran Tabbed Honorable Mention All-American

Emily Foran '05
Rookie sensation Emily Foran finished fourth individually at the NCAA Championship Tournament

June 4, 2002

AMHERST, MA Amherst College first-year women's golfer Emily Foran (Dallas, PA) was named an Honorable Mention All-American by the National Golf Coaches Association, thanks in part to her recent fourth-place finish at the NCAA Division III Championships, held at the Orchards Golf Club in nearby South Hadley, Mass.

Foran's play at the NCAA Tournament was nothing short of spectacular. The precocious rookie was in contention throughout the week, opening with an 81 on Tuesday (good for third place individually), followed by a scorching 80 on Wednesday (which moved her into second place), another 81 on Thursday and a final-round score of 85 on Friday.

Foran's All-America performance capped an outstanding first-year campaign in which she helped lead Amherst to its best season in recent memory, including a first-place showing at the Hartford Invitational and a third-place finish at the Mass. State Championships. The Jeffs also claimed third-place at the season-ending Division III NCAA Tournament.
