Morales Player of the Year, McIsaac All-GSC

Arkansas Tech’s Ana Morales was named Gulf South Conference women’s golf co-player of the year on Wednesday when the league office in Birmingham, Ala., announced the GSC postseason golf awards.

Morales (photographed, top right), a junior from Bogota, Colombia, is the first Golden Suns player to ever receive the GSC women’s golf player of the year award. She shares her honor with West Florida junior Bhavna Shetty.

Morales won three tournaments — the Lyon College Invitational, the Southern Arkansas Invitational and the Natural State Golf Classic — and had a scoring average of 82.2 during the 2009-10 season.

Joining Morales on the 2009-10 All-GSC team is Arkansas Tech junior Kyla McIsaac of Kentville, Nova Scotia, Canada.

McIsaac (photographed, bottom right) had four top-10 finishes in 2009-10 and a scoring average of 84.4.

Morales finished eighth and McIsaac was ninth in the 2010 GSC Tournament, which was played on Sunday and Monday at Hot Springs Country Club.

Their play helped the Golden Suns finish fourth, their best showing in the GSC Tournament since 2007.

Arkansas Tech won two team titles during the 2009-10 women’s golf season — the Lyon College Invitational and the Southern Arkansas Invitational.

This is the second All-GSC honor for both Morales and McIsaac. They join Danielle Lewis, who was all-conference in 2007 and 2009, as the only Arkansas Tech women’s golf team members to be named All-GSC in multiple seasons.

The Golden Suns are coached by Amy White.
