DURHAM, N.C. – Four different Blue Devils earned Golfweek All-America accolades on Wednesday with the announcement of its postseason awards.  Lindy Duncan was named to the first team and Laetitia Beck earned second team accolades, while Celine Boutier and Alejandra Cangrejo received honorable mention distinction.  

Duncan earned her fourth straight first team honor, after closing her outstanding career at the NCAA Championship with a second place finish.  A product of Fort Lauderdale, Fla., Duncan went birdie, birdie and eagle over her final three holes of the championship to secure the second place finish.  She notched a 71.86 stroke average, which was the seventh-best in school history, while totaling six top five, seven top 10 and nine top 20 finishes this season.  Duncan led Duke with 17 rounds of even or under par.  

Over her career, Duncan made her mark in the Duke record book ranking second in top five finishes (21), second in top 10 finishes (32), tied for fifth in wins (6), second in top 20 finishes (39), second in even or under par rounds (72), third as Duke’s top scorer in a tournament (27) tied for sixth in rounds played (126) and second in rounds in the 60s (23).  

Turning in her best season at Duke was Beck, as she totaled a career-best 73.16 stroke average, had one top five, four top 10 and eight top 20 finishes in 2012-13.  Beck, a product of Caesarea, Israel, closed the season with eight top 20 finishes over her final nine tournaments.  This included a second place finish at the ACC Championship and tied for 17th placement at the NCAA Championship.  Beck is a three-time All-ACC selection and was also a NGCA Honorable Mention All-America.

Boutier played her best golf on the biggest stage as she carded a tied for fourth place finish at the NCAA Championship with rounds of 69, 73, 71 and 74 for a total of one-under-par, 287.  A native of Montrouge, France, Boutier registered a 73.45 stroke average, two top five, four top 10 and five top 20 finishes on the year. Her 73.45 stroke average is the sixth best in school history by a Blue Devil rookie.  Boutier was the 2013 ACC Rookie of the Year.

Cangrejo, who is out of Bogota, Colombia, secured a career-best 73.86 stroke average on the season, while totaling two top five and four top 20 finishes on the season.  She had her best finish of the year at the NCAA Central Regional with rounds of 72, 69 and 70 as she placed tied for second with a career-best five-under-par, 211.  Cangrejo also turned in a tied for third place finish at the ACC Championship.  

As a team, Duke carded a second place finish at the NCAA Championship, after shooting a school-record 72-hole total of 1,154.  It was the 13th top-five finish at the NCAA Championship and second time Duke has placed second overall under the direction of 2012 and 2013 ACC Coach of the Year Dan Brooks.
