WGCA Honors Players and Coach; Three Named All-America
(HOWEY-IN-THE-HILLS, Fla.) – Multiple members of the Carnegie Mellon University women's golf team earned All-America honors from the Women's Golf Coaches Association (WGCA) for the fourth consecutive season, with another earning regional recognition along with head coach Dan Rodgers who was named the Division III Golf Pride Great Lakes Region Coach of the Year. It is also the fourth straight honor for Rodgers.
Sophomore Sriya Mupparaju earned her second All-America award while classmates Sense Sangkagoon and Kaylin Yeoh joined her on the honorable mention team. Senior Alexis Sudjianto accompanied the trio as regional honorees.
The four have helped the fifth-ranked Tartans to their third straight and fourth appearance in program history to the 2023 NCAA Division III Women's Golf Championships.
Heading into play at the NCAAs, Yeoh had the second lowest scoring average for the Cardinal and Gray with a 76.6 through 14 rounds. She recorded her season-low round of one-over par 73 at the Golfweek DIII Fall Invitational. At the UAA Match Play Championship, the sophomore won her opening match 2-up over Caraline Oakley of WashU.
Mupparaju led the team in scoring average for the second straight year at the end of the regular season with a 76.2 in 14 rounds of play. She won both of her matches at the UAA Championships and posted a season-low round of one-under par 71 to open play at the Jekyll Island Collegiate. Her 54-hole score of 221 at Jekyll placed her tied for third individually and was the fourth-best 54-hole score in program history.
Sangkagoon has a scoring average of 76.7 through 14 rounds for the Cardinal and Gray. Twice this season, at the Montgomery Country Club Women's Intercollegiate and Golfweek, she carded a career-low round of two-under par 70. Her one-over par 217 at Golfweek tied her for the best 54-hole tournament score in program history.
Sudjianto ended the regular season with a scoring average of 76.9 through 14 rounds. On two occasions this season, the senior has carded a season-best round of even par 72. At the UAA Match Play Championship, Sudjianto won her opening match 3&2 over Irene Wang of Emory.
