COLUMBUS, Ohio – Three members of the Ohio State University women’s golf team were selected for All-Big Ten accolades on Tuesday (Apr. 25). Jaclyn Lee, Katja Pogacar and Jessica Porvasnik were each voted to the All-Big Ten Second Team. In addition, Rio Watanabe was presented the Big Ten Sportsmanship award.

Pogacar and Porvasnik have been named to the All-B1G squad in all four seasons of their careers. Pogacar earned First Team honors in 2015 and 2016 while Porvasnik did so in 2014 and 2016. The pair becomes the second and third Buckeyes in school history to corral all-conference laurels four times (Kristen White was a First Team member from 2002-05).

This ’16-17 trio has combined to log 82 rounds donning the Scarlet & Gray this season, contributing to the team tally in 83 percent of those rounds. Lee enters the NCAA Regionals with a team-low 73.21 season scoring average after back-to-back Top-5 performances in the Lady Buckeye Spring Invitational and Big Ten Championships. Porvasnik and Pogacar are just decimal points behind, owning season averages of 73.93 and 74.04, respectively.
