Georgia golfers Emilie Burger and Marta Silva Zamora were named All-Americans by the National Golf Coaches Association (NGCA) at its annual banquet Friday evening after the conclusion of the NCAA Championships in Franklin, Tenn.
Burger was tabbed second-team All-America, while Silva Zamora secured honorable mention recognition.
In the process, Silva Zamora became just the second four-time All-American in Georgia women’s golf history, joining Shauna Estes (1997-2000). The senior from Compostela de Santiago, Spain, also earned first-team recognition as a sophomore and junior and honorable mention status as a freshman.
Burger produced the Bulldogs’ best stroke average in 2011-12, a 73.28 mark that ranks seventh in school history. The junior from Hoschton and Mill Creek High School also notched three top-10 and seven top-20 individual finishes in 10 tournaments.
Silva Zamora recorded a 73.31 average, just a single stroke more than Burger in 29 rounds played during 2011-12. She leaves Georgia with three of the top-10 averages in school history.
