CEDAR CITY, Utah, April 30 – Two Southern Utah University golfers, Monica Jung and Taylor Viquelia, have earned all-Big Sky recognition, the conference office announced today. The teams were selected by the conference's coaches.

Jung, a junior from Sydney, Australia, earned first-team recognition while Viquelia, a freshman from Koloa, Hawai’i, was named to the second team. The duo were the Thunderbirds’ two low finishers at the Big Sky tournament last week, leading SUU to a third place team finish.

Jung, one of three unanimous selections, led the Thunderbirds with a 76.6 stroke average this past season. It was the second-lowest average in the conference, the third-best mark in SUU’s women’s golf history and the second time in three years she has paced the team. She carded six top-10 and seven top-20 finishes in the team’s 11 tournaments during the 2013-14 season. Jung ended the year with a ninth-place finish at the Big Sky tournament and she finished the season atop SUU’s career stoke average list, at 76.9.

Viquelia finished second on the team with a stoke average of 77.5. She posted top-10 finishes in three of her last four tournaments and in four overall, including second-place at last week’s Big Sky Championships. Viquelia’s 77.5 stroke average ranks fifth on the school’s single-season stroke average top-10 and her second-place finish at the BSC tourney was the team’s top individual finish this year.
