Thomas earns second-team All-SEC honors.

May 2, 2014

Less than a week after receiving its 22nd consecutive NCAA Regional bid, the Tennessee women's golf team received additional good news Friday, as senior Chessey Thomas earned second-team All-SEC status.

The Southeastern Conference announced its annual Women's Golf Awards on Friday, which were voted on by the league's 14 head coaches. The All-SEC honor is the first of Thomas' collegiate career.

"This is really exciting news," Thomas said. "I'm really honored. I think my finish at the SEC Tournament proved I can play with anyone. I'm looking forward to going back home to Washington for the NCAA West Regional."

The native of Spokane, Wash., was the top finishing Lady Vol in seven of the team's ten tournaments. Thomas led the Lady Vols in stroke average (73.88) and had five top 25 finishes on the season, including a victory at the Lady Bulldog Individual.

"I'm so proud of Chessey being named second team All-SEC," head coach Judi Pavon said. "She has had a great senior season so far and to be recognized as one of the best players in the SEC is a huge accomplishment."

Thomas will lead the Lady Volunteers into Cle Elum, Wash., for the NCAA West Regional May 8-10.
