Arkansas Tech's Amy White was named Gulf South Conference women's golf coach of the year and two Golden Suns earned a spot on the All-GSC team when the league office announced postseason honors for the 2010-11 season on Monday, April 25.

White (photographed, top) led Arkansas Tech to its first GSC women's golf championship during the 2011 GSC Championships at Hot Springs Country Club on April 17-18.

The Golden Suns posted a 36-hole team score of 636, which was 16 strokes better than runner-up and five-time defending champion West Florida.

It was the fourth tournament victory of the season and the ninth tournament title in the last three years for White's Golden Suns.

Kyla McIsaac (photographed, bottom left) and Ana Morales (photographed, bottom right) were Arkansas Tech's top two individual finishers at the GSC Championships, and they are also the Golden Suns' representatives on the 2011 All-GSC women's golf team.

This is the third All-GSC honor for both McIsaac and Morales. They become the first two Golden Suns to ever earn three all-conference awards in golf.

McIsaac, a senior from Kentville, Nova Scotia, Canada, had a scoring average of 80.8 in 18 competitive rounds during her final season in the green and gold.

She placed in the top 10 in six of Arkansas Tech's nine tournaments during the 2010-11 season. McIsaac was the runner-up at the Pepsi Lion Invitational in Pottsboro, Texas, and she finished tied for second at the GSC Championships.

Morales, a senior from Bogota, Colombia, also had six top-10 finishes in 2010-11. She compiled a scoring average of 81.9 in 18 rounds. Her best finish of the year came when she matched McIsaac for a share of second place at the GSC Championships.
