Golfweek Honors Three Tide Women
Junior Stephanie Meadow received first-team honors for the third time in her Alabama career while freshman Emma Talley was named to the third team and senior Jennifer Kirby earned honorable mention accolades. Kirby, from Paris, Ontario, is also a three-time honoree, earning first-team mention in 2012.
Meadow is the first Alabama player to be selected as a three-time first-team All-American.
Potter has taken 23 teams to the NCAA Championships while recording 10 top-10 finishes and the 2012 NCAA Championship. He has coached 32 All-Americans and 58 All-Conference selections.
Meadow, who hails from Jordanstown, Northern Ireland, finished the 2012-13 season with a school-record 71.24 scoring average with more two tournament victories to extend her Alabama career record for wins to seven. Her 71.24 scoring average also led the nation. Southern California's NCAA Medalist Annie Park was the National Player and Freshman of the Year.
Talley, from Princeton, Ky., was the SEC Freshman of the Year and recorded the second-lowest scoring average by a freshman in school history at 73.0. She also claimed her first medalist honor with a win at the ASU/PING Invitational. Kirby finished her Alabama career with a 73.45 scoring average over 132 rounds and 44 tournaments.
Alabama has now won 17 Golfweek All-America honors by seven different players in Potter's eight-year tenure with the Crimson Tide. That list includes six first-team selections, one second-team pick, five third-team choices and five honorable mentions.
