-- For the second year in a row, Sarah Thompson took home an award from the Horizon League as the University of Detroit Mercy sophomore was selected to the All-League Team on Thursday night.
The announcement was made at the annual Horizon League Golf Championship banquet on the eve of the conference tournament at the Mission Inn Resort.
Thompson led the Titans and was fifth in the Horizon League with a career-low 78.61 average, which includes seven top-20 finishes and three-top-10 efforts.
Her seven top-20 performances came in just eight events that Detroit took part in. She was runner-up at the Loyola Fall Invitational with a 239. She also finished fourth at the Dayton Fall Invite with a 165 and shared sixth tallying a 151 at the IPFW Spring Classic.
She set career bests in a round (73 in the second round at IPFW), 36-hole (149 at Dayton) and 54-hole tournament (237 at the 2014 Rocket Classic).
It is the 20th time in school history that a Titan has earned All-League honors and the first for Thompson, who was the 2014 HL Freshman of the Year.
Thompson and the Titans will look for their third-straight conference championship as the event is scheduled to go off at 7:30 a.m.
