McCutchan earns third career All-NWC Second Team selection as Ford named Freshman of the Year

HILLSBORO, Ore. -- Two Pioneers ended the 2018-2019 season with conference honors as Annie McCutchan conclude her collegiate career with her third selection to the All-Northwest Conference Second Team while Kamryn Ford capped off her debut season with a Second-Team selection and Freshman of the Year honors, the conference office announced Monday.

McCutchan fired an 84-75-159 to place sixth at the NWC Championships this last weekend. In the fall McCutchan had a 12th place finish at the NWC Fall Classic with rounds of 87-83-170.

McCutchan's All-NWC selection caps off an impressive season in which she had three-second place finishes and a victory at the Puget Sound Spring Invitational with a two-day total of 155 to best the field by three strokes. McCutchan finished no lower than 12th place in any tournament this season.

This past weekend at the NWC Championships Ford carded a 78-87-165 to place 13th overall. Ford was tied for third going into the second day of competition. Ford's 22nd place finish at the NWC Spring Classic and 15th place finish at the NWC Fall Classic earned her a Second Team All-NWC Selection and the title of NWC Freshman of the Year.

Ford's debut season was highlighted by a third place finish at the Puget Sound Fall Invitational in which she fired a 13-over par 157. Ford had three top-10 finishes this season and seven top-20 finishes.

This is the fourth year in a row that the Pioneers have had a golfer selected to the All-NWC Second Team and the first time that Lewis & Clark has had a golfer selected as Freshman of the Year since the conference created the honor three seasons ago.

The Pioneers finished the season with a fourth-place finish at the NWC Championships and a fourth place finish overall in the conference standings. With the exception of a fifth-place finish at the NWC Spring Classic, the Pioneers did not finish lower than fourth in any event this season.

McCutchan along with fellow seniors Tori Eichten and Jane Almeida played their final collegiate rounds this past weekend and will graduate in a couple of weeks. The Pioneers are expected to return Ford and fellow freshman Olivia Weaver along with junior Annika Klunk who is currently studying abroad in Germany.
