Morgane Metraux, Doherty Earn All-American Honors By GolfWeek

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (seminoles.com) – Senior Morgane Metraux and sophomore Amanda Doherty, who helped lead the Seminole women’s golf team to a 12th place finish in the 2018 NCAA Championship Finals, have earned All-American Honorable Mention honors from GolfWeek for their outstanding performances during the 2018 season. Metraux (71.69 stroke average) and Doherty (72.09) enjoyed the best seasons of their careers as they helped the Seminoles finish in the top 20 of the NCAA Championships for the school-record third consecutive season.

Florida State continued to make its presence known nationally as it enjoyed another sensational year during the 2017-18 fall and spring seasons. Under the direction of eighth-year Head Coach Amy Bond, Florida State finished tied for 12th at the NCAA Championship Finals (the second best NCAA finish in school history), second in the NCAA Tallahassee Regional (tied for the best regional finish in school history), second in the ACC Championship (tied for the best ACC Championship finish in school history) and earned seven top-5 team finishes in 11 events. Florida State finished the season ranked No. 19 nationally by GolfWeek and No. 20 nationally by GolfStat.

Metraux (Lausanne, Switzerland) has now earned All-American honors from the Women’s Golf Coaches Association and GolfWeek in both of the last two seasons. She earned All-American Honorable Mention Honors in both 2017 and 2018 from the WGCA and earned All-American Third Team Honors (in 2017) and All-American Honorable Mention Honors (in 2018) from GolfWeek.

Metraux closed her Seminole career as a two-time All-American, two-time All-NCAA Regional and two-time All-ACC selection. She graduated from Florida State with a degree in Management on May 4, 2018. Metraux finished her four-year career with a 73.18 stroke average – the third lowest in school history and owns three of the top 25 single season scoring averages in school history – No. 1 in 2018 (71.69), No. 5 in 2017 (72.26) and No. 23 in 2016 (74.26).

Doherty, who still has two seasons of eligibility remaining as a Seminole, earned All-American honors for the first time in her career in 2018.

Doherty (Atlanta, Ga.) was an All-ACC honoree for the first time in her career in 2018 and begins her junior season as one of the nation’s top collegiate golfers. She is ranked second in school history with a 73.17 stroke average. Doherty’s scoring average in her first collegiate season (74.26) was the third lowest by a freshman in school history during the 2017 season and her sophomore season average of 72.09 is the fourth lowest single season average in school history.

“This is very exciting for me because it was a goal of mine starting out the season,” said Doherty. “It was something that I worked really hard towards, and it is nice to see that pay off. I want to thank all of my coaches because this would not have been possible without them.”

Florida State (two), Wake Forest and Duke were the only teams in the ACC who had multiple players earn mention to the first, second, third or honorable mention All-American team as named by GolfWeek.

Florida State opens its 2018 fall season at the Cougar Classic at the Yeaman’s Hall Club in Hanahan, S.C., Sept. 9-11.
