GREEN BAY, Wis. (GreenBayPhoenix.com) – After leading the Green Bay women’s golf team in scoring average this season, sophomore Avery Steen (Luck, Wis.) has been named to the All-Horizon League team, the league office announced on Thursday evening at the banquet in advance of the 2015 Horizon League Championships.
Steen, a member of the seven-player all-league team, is the first Green Bay women’s golfer since Katie Tabbert in 2009 and just the second in program history to receive postseason honors.
As a sophomore in 2015, Steen led the Phoenix in scoring average and posted three top-10 finishes. In the fall, Steen tied for second at the UIC Fall Invitational before claiming sixth at the Loyola Invitational. More recently, Steen earned two head-to-head victories at the IUPUI/Valparaiso Match Play.
The 2015 Horizon League Championships begin Friday at Mission Inn Resort at Howey-in-the-Hills, Fla. At last season’s league championship, Steen led the Phoenix with a 14th-place finish, including a 2-over par 75 in the second round. The 54-hole tournament will be played on a 5,975-yard, par-73 course and include 18 holes Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
Live scoring will be accessible throughout the tournament on GolfStat.com.
