Florida Tech’s Larsson and Leftinger Awarded All-SCC Honors
By Florida Tech // May 2, 2015
BREVARD COUNTY • MELBOURNE, FLORIDA – With Florida Tech less than one week away from making its third straight appearance at the NCAA Division II Women’s Golf Championships, a pair of its members have already risen to the forefront.
Representing the Panthers for a second consecutive season, both Johanna Larsson and Felicia Leftinger were named All-Sunshine State Conference selections Tuesday.
Larsson was chosen to the All-SSC First Team, while Leftinger earned second team honors.
Just a sophomore, Johanna Larsson adds another first-team accolade to her name following her 2014 recognition.
The Lidkoping, Sweden native is among the top-ten in NCAA Division II in scoring average, posting a season-best five-under-par 67 in the second round of the Armstrong Pirate Women’s Invitational.
In addition, Larsson has recorded seven top-five finishes in just 10 total tournaments, including a tie for first at the Lady Moc Classic and a win at the Myrtle Beach Intercollegiate event.
Felicia Leftinger, meanwhile, tallied six top-five finishes in helping lead the Panthers to a No. 1 ranking this spring.
As a junior, Leftinger carded a 75.08-stroke scoring average, claiming a thrilling victory at the Saint Leo Invitational back in late October.
Lynn’s Jessica Bradley was awarded SSC Golfer of the Year, as Madison Lellyo and Julie Garner of top-ranked Rollins were presented Freshman of the Year and Coach of the Year, respectively.
Together, Larsson and Leftinger will look to lead the fourth-seeded Panthers, as they begin first-round NCAA Regional action this Saturday at Savannah Quarters Country Club in Pooler, Georgia.
