Big 12 Women's Golf Coach, Players Earn National Honors
May 25, 2012
Half a dozen Big 12 women's golfers earned All-America honors from the National Golf Coaches Association, marking the most league selections by the NGCA in Conference history.

Oklahoma's Chirapat Jao-Javanil garnered a first team distinction after capturing the 2012 national crown at this week's NCAA Championships in Franklin, Tenn. She is the ninth Sooner to be named an All-American.

Hayley Davis (Baylor), Kelsey Vines (Oklahoma State) and Katerina Ruzickova (Texas A&M) were tabbed second-team honorees, while Texas Tech's Gabby Dominguez and Kim Kaufman tallied honorable mention status. The Lady Raiders were one of nine programs nationally to have multiple honorees, and the pair becomes TTU's first women's golf All-Americans in school history.

In addition, Oklahoma head coach Veronique Drouin-Luttrell was named NGCA Division I Eaton Pride Central Region Coach of the Year. Drouin-Luttrell guided the Sooners to their second conference championship crown en route to being named Big 12 Coach of the Year. Her squad finished in the top five in six of nine events this year.
