Beatrice Wallin Bio / Charlotte Heath Bio

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (seminoles.com) – Beatrice Wallin and Charlotte Heath, who helped lead Florida State to one of the top seasons in school history in 2021, have been named as All-Americans by Golfweek.  Wallin was named as a First-Team All-American, while Heath was named as an Honorable Mention All-American by the editors of one of the nation’s top golf publications.

Wallin has now earned All-American honors from Golfweek in each of her first three seasons as a Seminole – First Team in 2021 and Honorable Mention in 2019 and 2020.  She has earned five different All-American citations during her career (three from Golfweek and two from the Women’s Golf Coaches Association).  Heath earned All-American honors for the first time in her career from Golfweek in 2021.

Florida State, Duke, Wake Forest, and Louisville were the only ACC teams who had at least one player named to the First, Second, Third or Honorable Mention All-American Teams by Golfweek.  With Wallin earning First-Team honors and Heath earning Honorable Mention honors, the Seminoles were one of only three teams from the ACC with multiple players named All-Americans by Golfweek.

Wallin, who was named as the 2021 ACC Golfer of the Year, was the only player from the ACC named to the All-American First-Team by Golfweek.

Wallin and Heath both earned All-ACC Honors in 2021; Wallin for the second time and Heath for the first time in her career.  Both Wallin and Heath earned All-ACC Honors as freshmen – they are two of the five freshm2n in school history who have earned All-ACC honors.

Wallin finished as the ACC Championship stroke play runner-up with a 7-under par score of 209.  She won her first two individual championships in 2021 — at the Florida State Match-Up with career-best scores for a three-round tournament (204) and a three-round tournament vs. par (-12) and at the Pinetree Collegiate.  Wallin tied the school record for a single round with a career-best score of 65 in the second round of the Pinetree Collegiate.  She finished her junior season with a career-low stroke average of 70.72 – the second-lowest single season scoring average in school history.

Wallin will return for her senior season as one of the nation’s top players and will compete for every national award in 2022.

Heath was a member of Florida State’s NCAA Louisville Regional Championship winning team and the Seminoles’ NCAA Championships Final team.  She helped lead the Seminoles to a ninth place finish in the NCAA Championship Finals – the highest NCAA Championships finish in school history while earning three top-5 finishes — tied for second at the Florida State Match-Up, tied for third at the Pinetree Women’s Collegiate and fifth place at the Moon Invitational in her first season as a Seminole.  Heath was Florida State’s leading golfer with a fifth place finish at the Moon Invitational.  Heath averaged 72.58 strokes in 24 rounds during eight tournaments in the first season of her Florida State career.

“I’m really happy to be on the list with so many other great players,” said Heath.  “Being named an All-American was not something I expected as a freshman, but it makes me really excited for the next few years at Florida State.”

Seminole Head Coach Amy Bond, who was a finalist for the WGCA National Coach of the Year Award in 2021, is very proud of all of her golfers.

“Having two Golfweek All -Americans is a great accomplishment for our program,” said Head Coach Amy Bond.  “Beatrice enjoyed a great year and to cap it off as a First-Team All-American is outstanding. For Charlotte to be named as an Honorable Mention All -American is a great honor and adds an exclamation point to a good freshman year. I am proud of their hard work and dedication. This is a wonderful way to end the golf awards part of our season.”

Florida State has had at least one player earn All-American honors in six consecutive and seven of the last eight seasons under 2017 ACC Coach of the Year Amy Bond.  Since 2014, six different Seminoles have earned 16 different All-American distinctions.
