DENTON, Texas - The North Texas women's golf program and head coach Jeff Mitchell has announced their year-end team awards. Freshman McKenzie Ralston was named the Newcomer of the Year after one of the lowest stroke averages by a freshman at North Texas. Ralston posted a 76.74 stroke average and had five top-25 finishes and one top-10 in nine events this season.
Chaslyn Chrismer captured the Mean Green Spirit award, which is given to a team member that exhibits a great "team" vision, is great in the classroom and is athletically strong and has those qualities that promote an overall success of the women's golf program. Chrismer had a 3.8 GPA in the classroom.
Jacey Chun won the Most Improved award and was also named the team MVP of the season, which is given to the player that excels at the following categories. Stroke average, rounds played, rounds counted, average tournament finish, quality wins (head-to-head wins over nationally ranked players), head-to-head against teammates and quality finishes.
Chun had three top-10 finishes, including a sixth place finish at the Sun Belt Conference Championship, six top-25 finishes, the lowest stroke average on the team and the highest average tournament finish. Chun was also named to the all-conference team.
"This year will remain as one of the best in North Texas school history," said Mitchell. Our tournament schedule was much stronger and the quality, and difficulty, of the courses we played was a lot higher. With that, these ladies put in a great deal of work and performed at a high level. I am really proud of our graduating seniors, Addison Long, Kelsey Kipp and Jacey. They have made a lasting impression on this program."
