For just the fourth time in the history of Franklin & Marshall's women's golf program, a Diplomat earned multiple All-Centennial Conference (CC) honors in her career when senior Kathleen Smith tied for fifth out of 29 competitors at the 2016 CC Championships to garner her second-consecutive accolade.
Smith shaved three strokes off of her day-one score, giving her a total of 175 (89-86) at the par-72, 5,801-yard Foxchase Golf Club course. She enjoyed another stellar season for F&M after leading the team with an 89.2 stroke average through five events, a mark that placed seventh in the conference.
The senior placed in the top-10 in every competition she participated in and had three top-five finishes, highlighted by a second-place showing out of 17 competitors after carding a 90 at the F&M Fall Invitational in October.
Megan Whittier, who was named to the Centennial's All-Sportsmanship Team, placed 25th with a 206 total (101-105) at the championships while Harriet Waldron totaled a 238 (122-116) to round out the Diplomats' scorers.
