Adding on to the announcements this week regarding all-conference team nominations, USC women's golf boasts five players who earned All-Pac-12 recognition. Senior Sophia Popov and sophomores Annie Park and Kyung Kim all received first team honors whereas junior Doris Chen and freshman Karen Chung earned second team honors.
This is Popov's third All-Pac-12 first team nomination and it is the second consecutive first team nomination for Park and Kim. Also, this is the second consecutive season where the Trojans have had five golfers nominated for one of the three All-Pac-12 teams and the fifth year in a row with at least four nominated.
The Trojans may have finished second in the Pac-12 Championship, but they enter the NCAA championship as a number one seed in the NCAA West Regional tournament looking to defend their title beginning Thursday, May 8th.
