TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (seminoles.com) — Senior golfer Kim Metraux has been awarded The Femina Perfecta medallion for her representation as a model female student-athlete on the 2017 Seminole women’s golf team.
Femina Perfecta is an annual award presented during the Champions Beyond the Game Brunch each fall semester. This year marked the 19th annual brunch which celebrates women’s athletics at Florida State University. The event is sponsored by Seminole Boosters.
Metraux was one of eleven female athletes to receive the award as it is presented to a deserving member of each of the eleven Florida State women’s teams. Femina Perfecta translates to “Complete Woman” and is awarded to the player who best “exemplifies the motto on the University seal” and “is invaluable to their team and who will always make a difference.”
As the team was in Oklahoma during the brunch participating in the Schooner Fall Classic, Metraux was unable to accept the award at the time, but that did not stop her from enjoying the honor. She was presented with her medallion during a team meeting following the Seminoles’ return from Oklahoma.
“I am very happy and honored that my teammates voted for me,” said Metraux. “It means a lot to me and says that my teammates believe and trust in me as a person.”
Metraux is a valuable member of the Florida State women’s golf team, both on and off the course. She earned All-ACC honors in 2017 as she averaged a career-low 73.98 strokes in 35 rounds. She also excels academically. Metraux has earned Academic President’s List honors (4.0 GPA) during three different semesters in the first three years of her Florida State career.
Metraux, who is majoring in management, is a two-time All-ACC selection (2016 and 2017) and has been named to the WGCA All-American Scholar team, the All-ACC Academic Team and the ACC Academic Honor Roll in each of the first three seasons of her career.
When asked to give advice to young girls looking to become “The Complete Woman”, Metraux responded, “Simply be yourself, treat your teammates well, have fun with them and work hard in the classroom and at practice.”
A role model as both an athlete and young woman, Metraux’s character has earned her the right to be called Femina Perfecta.
