December 7, 1998

PULLMAN, Wash. -- Washington State University Golfer Stefanie Coleman was named 1998 Pacific Northwest Player of the Year in the Women's Amateur category.

Since transferring to Washington State from Green River Community College in the fall of 1997, Coleman has posted four top 10 finishes and eight top 25 finishes. A senior from Tacoma, Wash., Coleman recorded her two best tournament finishes during the fall of 1997 and 1998 with a tie for sixth place at the Brigham Young Invitational and San Diego State Classic, respectively.

"Coleman is a great player and has played exceptionally well the last few tournaments," said Head Coach Walt Williams. "This is the icing on the cake for her and I am very proud of her accomplishments."

The Pacific Northwest Player of the Year honor is awarded in six categories and is in its second year of existence. Recipients are nominated by state and provincial golf associations from around the Northwest. All winners will be recognized with a feature article in the March 1999 issue of Pacific Northwest Golfer.
