Morgane Metraux Earns All-American Honors

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (seminoles.com) – Florida State senior Morgane Metraux has earned All-American Honorable Mention honors as named by the Women’s Golf Coaches Association, marking the second consecutive season she has been named as one of the nation’s top golfers. The honor caps off a sensational season for Metraux who also earned All-ACC and All Region Honors as she helped lead Florida State to the second-best national finish in school history. The Seminoles finished in a tie for 12th place in the NCAA Championship Finals – the third consecutive season they have finished in the top 20 in the national championship.

Metraux enjoyed her best season as a Seminole as she carded a career-best 71.69 stroke average – the best single season stroke average in school history. She finished in a tie for third in the individual standings at the ACC Championships, a tie for fourth at the NCAA Tallahassee Regional Championships and in a tie for fifth in the NCAA Championship Finals. Metraux’s tied for fifth place finish in the NCAA Championship Finals is the best national finish in school history.

Metraux completed one of the most memorable postseason runs in school history in leading the Seminoles through the months of April and May. She was a total of 16 strokes under par in the ACC, NCAA Regional and NCAA Championship events. Metraux carded eight of 10 scores under par and four scores in the 60s. She set the school record for lowest round in the NCAA Championship Finals with a 68 in the fourth round of the event on May 21.

Metraux’s selection as an All-American marks the third consecutive season a Seminole golfer has earned the honor. She earned the honor in 2017 and 2018 after Matilda Castren earned All-American Honorable honors in 2017. A Florida State player has earned All-American honors in 10 of the 13 years dating back to 2006. Head Coach Amy Bond has had four All-Americans at Florida State (Maria Salinas in 2011 and 2012; Castren in 2014 and 2017 and Metraux in 2017 and 2018).

“It was an objective of mine to earn All-American honors when the year began,” said Metraux. “When I began having issues with my wrist I wasn’t sure it would be possible. Earning the honor under these conditions means a lot to me, and I am grateful to bring two All-American honors to the Florida State program. I’d like to thank all of our coaches, especially Coach Bond, for recruiting Kim and me to be Seminoles. This award is not only about me and I of course share it with every one of my teammates.”

Metraux, who earned President List honors four times in her academic career for a perfect 4.0 grade point average, was presented with her degree in Management on May 4 during Commencement at Florida State.
