Women's Golf's Cordes Named First-Team Academic All-District

CONWAY, S.C. – Coastal Carolina University senior women's golfer Line Cordes (Bronderdlev, Denmark-Bronderslev Gymnasium (Western Carolina)) was named to the ESPN The Magazine Academic All-District III Women's At Large First Team, the College Sports Information Director of America (CoSIDA) announced recently.

Cordes, a marine science major with a grade point average of 3.94, was named the Big South Conference Women's Golf Player of the Year and Scholar-Athlete of the Year this past season.

At the Big South Tournament, she won the individual medalist crown, shooting a final round-low one under 71 and finished at even par 216 to win the title by 11 shots. Her standout performance led the Coastal women's golf team its third PUPS/Big South Women's Golf Championship and the program's first ever berth in the NCAA Regionals.

During the regular season, Cordes recorded a league-best 74.52 scoring average in 27 rounds and posted a conference-high seven top-10 finishes out of nine events in 2004-05. Four of those finishes were in the top-5, including second at the Unlimited Potential/Bay Tree Classic and fourth at the Lady Herd/El Diablo Invitational. Cordes, ranked No. 52 by GolfStat, earned Big South Golfer of the Week honors March 17 following her top-five finish at the Waterlefe/ USF Invitational.
