Honorable Mention

The UC Davis women’s golf team was one of the most dominant Aggie squads of the year.

Junior Chelsea Stelzmiller was one of the players that helped propel the Aggies to a first-place finish at the Big West Conference championships.

The Placerville, Calif. native was the second lowest scorer on the team with a 75.4 average per round and finished in the top 5 of two tournaments and in the top 10 of another.

Included in those two top 5 finishes was an individual title at the Big West championships.

It wasn’t easy for Stelzmiller, though, as after 54 holes, she and teammate Amy Simanton entered a playoff hole. The title wasn’t decided until the third playoff hole as Stelzmiller edged Simanton to take home honors.

The win marked the first time Stelzmiller has captured the Big West title after falling in a playoff hole during her freshman year and tying for second in 2009.
