NOTRE DAME, Ind. – The Women’s Golf Coaches Association (WGCA) selected four University of Notre Dame golfers as 2015-16 Women’s Collegiate Golf All-American Scholars.
Notre Dame’s honorees included recent graduate Talia Campbell (Dallas, Texas/Ursuline Academy), rising senior Jordan Ferreira (University Place, Wash./Bellarmine Prep) as well as rising sophomores Emma Albrecht (Ormond Beach, Fla./Father Lopez) and Isabella DiLisio (Hatfield, Pa./Mount Saint Joseph Academy).
Campbell was a three-time all conference selection (All-ACC in 2015 and 2016, All-BIG EAST in 2014) and served as a team captain during her senior season. She was an All-ACC Academic Team honoree as a senior while leading the team with a 73.84 stroke average (fourth-best in the program's single-season records book). Campbell finished her Irish career ranked second in program history with 74.46 career stroke average and she ranks second in school history with 21 team-leading tournament efforts.
As a junior, Ferreira posted a 76.16 stroke average in 11 tournaments. She started 10 events and played once as individual competitor while collecting three top-25 finishes. For her career, she ranks fifth in school history with a 75.66 career stroke average. A 2014 U.S. Women's Open qualifier (Pinehurst, N.C.), Ferreira was an All-ACC Academic Team selection as a sophomore.
As a freshman at Notre Dame in 2015-16, Albrecht posted five top-15 finishes and finished the season with a 74.44 stroke average, good for second on the team and 22nd in the Atlantic Coast Conference. She recently won the Florida State Amateur Title (June 20) and she was also a 2016 All-Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) Academic Team selection.
