IOWA CITY, Iowa — Freshman Jacquelyn Galloway is Iowa’s Big Ten’s women’s golf sportsmanship honoree, the conference announced Monday.
The Rio Rancho, New Mexico, native earns her first Big Ten honor. Galloway was a solid component in the Hawkeye lineup this year, competing in eight competitions.
Galloway’s season was highlighted with two career-best scores at the Magnolia Invitational in the fall of 2019. She shot a two-under par 18-hole best (68), landing her a place in the record book, and a 54-hole low (217). Galloway’s best season finish was at the Entrada Classic this spring tied for fifth place.
“Jacque is a class act,” Iowa head coach Megan Menzel said. “She is a competitor who is relentless on the course and gives her best each and every day for her teammates. Jacque has worked hard to improve her own self talk to be a strong role model and someone that her teammates can rely on during competition and practice.”
Galloway was also honored with the Team Player Award by the coaching staff and her teammates.
