Carling Coffing, Emma Jandel and Gemma Webster named Second Team All-Big Ten
COLUMBUS, Ohio After the conclusion of the 2008 Big Ten Championships, three members of the third-place Ohio State women’s golf team were awarded with All-Big Ten honors Sunday. Senior Carling Coffing, sophomore Emma Jandel and junior captain Gemma Webster were each named Second Team All-Big Ten.
Coffing, who has led the Buckeyes throughout the spring season, finished the Big Ten championships tied for 10th. The native of Middletown, Ohio, was recognized as Big Ten Golfer of the Week earlier this season after tying for third at the Central District Invitational (Feb. 8-9). Coffing holds the lowest stroke average on the team at 75.71 and has five Top 25 finishes, including three in the Top 10. The honor is her second All-Big Ten recognition, after being named to the second team as a sophomore in 2006.
Receiving All-Big Ten honors for the first time in her career is Jandel. The Dayton, Ohio, posted her best finish of the season tying for seventh at the Big Ten championships. Jandel has been a staple for the Buckeyes through both the fall and spring seasons with eight Top 25 finishes in her second season of collegiate competition. She has been a mainstay in the Ohio State lineup, playing in all 68 rounds of her career.
Webster was named to Second Team All-Big Ten for the second-consecutive seeason. The Buckeye captain finished tied for 43rd at the Big Ten Championships and has been a main contributor for Ohio State all season. The native of Glasgow, Scotland led the Buckeyes in scoring average throughout the fall season and recorded her best performance of the spring at the Lady Buckeye Invitational (April 19-20) where she finished seventh.
