 TUCSON, Ariz. – University of Arizona women's golfer Krystal Quihuis is the Pac-12 Conference Freshman of the Year, it was announced by the league office on Wednesday. Earlier this week, she was also named a Women's Golf Coaches' Association (WGCA) Honorable Mention All-American.

Since the award's inception in 2000, Quihuis is Arizona's third Pac-12 Rookie of the Year and the first since Erica Blasberg in 2003. Lorena Ochoa also won the award in 2001.

Quihuis played as part of Arizona's line-up in every tournament this spring, eight total, and was the Wildcats' top finisher at three events.

She was named WGCA Honorable Mention All-America after earning All-Pac-12 Honorable Mention honors in April. In NCAA Championships stroke play, she earned a top-25 finish, was the sixth-best freshman overall and the top Pac-12 freshman.

On the season, Quihuis shot nine rounds at or below par, recorded a stroke average of 73.69 and earned six top-20 finishes. Her season-low round of 69 came at the Allstate Sugar Bowl Invitational where she finished fourth. She recorded her season-low tournament of 214 (-2) at the Wildcat Invitational where she finished ninth.

In April, the Wildcats won their eighth Pac-12 Conference title (1992, 1997, 1998, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2010, 2015) and their first since the 2010 season.
