W. Golf: Wallin, Williamson And Heath Earn All-American Honors

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (seminoles.com) – Florida State golfers Beatrice Wallin (second-team), Amelia Williamson (third-team) and Charlotte Heath (honorable mention) have been named All-Americans for the 2022 season by Golfweek.  All three Seminole golfers have now earned All-American honors from both the Women’s Golf Coaches Association and Golfweek, as well as All-ACC honors as they helped lead Florida State to one of the greatest seasons in school history.

The Seminoles placed an ACC-high three players on Golfweeks’ All-American teams.  Wake Forest (Rachel Kuehn, First-Team and Carolina Lopez-Chacarra, Second-Team) was the only other ACC team with multiple All-Americans as named by Golfweek.  National runner-up Oregon led the nation with five All-Americans, while National Champion Stanford and Texas totaled four All-Americans each.

Florida State, Oregon, Stanford, and Texas were the only schools in the nation with at least three players who earned All-American honors from Golfweek.

“We are very happy for Beatrice, Amelia, and Charlotte to be recognized for their outstanding play this season,” said Head Coach Amy Bond.  “They were our leaders throughout the season, with each of them displaying their tremendous leadership qualities to our younger players every day.  Each of them played very consistently throughout the season, and stepped up when we needed them to be at their best.  We are going to miss Bea tremendously, but are thankful that both Amelia and Charlotte will be back in our lineup in 2022-23.”

Florida State finished the 2022 season ranked No. 7 by Golfstat and No. 9 by Golfweek — the seventh consecutive season the Seminoles have finished the year ranked within the nation’s top-25 teams by Golfweek: 2022 (No. 9), 2021 (No. 11), 2020 (No 24), 2019 (No. 10), 2018 (No. 19), 2017 (No. 6) and 2016 (No 24).

Wallin, who finished her career ranked second in school history with a 72.11 stroke average, has now been recognized as an all-American seven times during her career: First-Team by the WGCA in 2021, First-Team by Golfweek in 2021, First-Team by the WGCA in 2022, Second-Team by Golfweek in 2022, Honorable Mention by Golfweek in 2019, Honorable Mention by the WGCA in 2020 and Honorable Mention by Golfweek in 2020.

Wallin begins her professional career on the Epson Tour at the Twin Bridges Championship at the Pinehaven Country Club in Albany, N.Y.

Williamson enjoyed her best season as a Seminole, as she averaged a career-low 72.04 strokes in nine events as a senior.  She won her first career individual collegiate championship at the Florida State Match Up and earned a career-high seven top-10 finishes.  Williamson is ranked eighth in school history with a 73.82 stroke average.

Both Wallin (Humanities) and Williamson (Sport Management) earned their Bachelor’s Degrees from Florida State in April.

Heath, who has earned All-America honors in both of her first two seasons at Florida State, ranked ninth in the ACC with a 72.90 stroke average during the 2021-22 fall and spring seasons.  She earned a career-high five top-10 finishes and finished in a tie for 10th place in the individual standings at the ACC Championship.  Heath was Florida State’s leading golfer at both the Moon Invitational and the Clemson Invitational during the spring 2022 season.

Florida State opens its fall 2022 season at the College of Charleston’s Cougar Classic in September.
