Honorable Mention

Demi Runas performed the way she was expected to this season. Which is to say, she was exceptional.

The junior has been the most consistent performer for the UC Davis women’s golf team in her three years here. It is no coincidence that the Aggies have won the Big West Conference Championship each of her three years here.

Runas ended her impressive year as the No. 50-ranked player in the nation, putting together a season that garnered her a second straight Big West Player of the Year award.

A victory at the Ptarmigan Ram Fall Classic with a five-under-par to open the season marked Runas’ first collegiate title of her career. Her second would come a couple months later, when she seized the PING/ASU Invitational.

The Torrance, Calif. native had four top-five finishes on the year to lead UC Davis, who will look forward to seeing what Runas can do in her final season with the Aggies next year.
