Georgina Blackman named to conference first team

IRVING, Texas — WKU women’s golfer Georgina Blackman was named a First-Team
All-Conference USA selection Wednesday, as announced by the league office.

Blackman, a junior, has earned All-C-USA honors in each of her first three seasons
on The Hill. She’s just the second Lady Topper to record three all-conference
selections, along with Ellinor Haag.

Blackman garnered Third-Team All-C-USA honors in each of her first two seasons at WKU.

The Lady Toppers have had at least one all-conference performer each year since 2014
after previously going without such an honor since 2000.

“Georgina has been the model of consistency,” WKU head coach Adam Gary said. “She
capped off a solid season with a great conference finish, our program’s best in
nearly 20 years. The sky is the limit for her next year as she goes for her fourth
all-conference selection.”

Blackman led WKU with a 74.6 stroke average this season and was the team’s top
finisher six times in 11 outings.

The Essex, England, native registered three top-five results this season and six
top-10 finishes, including a tie for seventh last week at the 2017 Conference USA
Championship.

Blackman’s seventh-place performance was the best conference tournament finish by a
Lady Topper since Crystal Anglea placed fifth in 2000, and her three-round total of
220 set a new program record for lowest total score in a conference championship by
an individual.

That was Blackman’s fourth straight result of seventh place or better. She finished
in the top 20 in eight events this season and has reached that benchmark in 24 of 33
tournaments across her career.

Blackman also has nine top-five finishes in her career.
