DURHAM, N.C. -  Coming off a tied for eighth finish at the NCAA Women’s Golf Championship, Duke sophomore Lindy Duncan was awarded National Golf Coaches Association (NGCA) First Team All-America honors for the second straight year. 

Duncan, who is a native of Fort Lauderdale, Fla., posted a 72.62 stroke average to go along with five top five, nine top 10 and 10 top 20 finishes on the season.  Her stroke average led the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) and also ranked as the eighth-best in Duke single-season history. 

On the season, Duncan posted her second collegiate victory at the LSU Golf Classic with rounds of 72, 75 and 71 for a total of 218.  She won the title on the third hole of a playoff.  She also notched top five placements at the ACC Championship, Allstate Sugar Bowl Intercollegiate, Landfall Tradition and the NCAA Fall Preview.  The 5-6 Duncan was also named to the NGCA All-Central Regional team.

Duncan is a two-time ACC Player of the Year and NGCA First Team All-America.  She owns a career scoring average of 72.69.  Duncan has turned in nine top five, 15 top 10 and 20 top 20 finishes in those two years. 

With Duncan being named first team All-America in each of her first two years with the Blue Devils, she became just the sixth Duke golfer to accomplish it -- Liz Janangelo, Amanda Blumenherst, Brittany Lang, Virada Nirapathpongporn and Beth Bauer.
