The ASUN Conference announced its 2019-20 women's golf all-conference teams, and the 10-member squad included a pair of Stetson players.
Senior Justine Lauer and junior Hanna Kiefer were both named to the team, which also included two players from FGCU and Kennesaw State and four from North Florida.
Lauer posted a team-best 73.59 scoring average over 22 rounds of play this year. She set a program record for lowest single round score (66, -6) and 54-hole score (206, -10) in relation to par at the FIU Pat Bradley Invitational, finishing second in that event, one shot out of a playoff.
Her efforts helped the team to a program record eight-under par 856 to win the tournament. She was named ASUN Player of the Week for that performance. In addition to second at the FIU event, she tied for third at the Dartmouth Invitational with a two-under par 142 for the 36-hole event.
Kiefer was second on the team, just .05 behind Lauer, with a 73.64 scoring average over 22 rounds of play. She earned her first tournament title with a five-under par 211 in the JU Amelia Island Intercollegiate and earned her second career ASUN Player of the Week for that performance.
In addition to the All-ASUN squad, the league also announced its Academic All-ASUN team for 2019-20, with Lauer and junior Meghan McLean earning positions on that team. Lauer, who is graduating this spring, has a 3.723 cumulative GPA in Health Sciences while McLean carries a 3.88 GPA in Biology.

Florida League making plans to play
The Florida League, a summer collegiate wood-bat baseball league with teams in DeLand and elsewhere in Central Florida, is making plans to play this season by restructuring because of the coronavirus pandemic.
A 30-game season is scheduled to begin the week of June 29, preceded by a two-week preseason. The league will be divided into two divisions for the first time.
Division I will be open to elite college players and will be invite-only. Division II will offer an open registration and requires players to currently be on a college roster, be a committed 2020 high school senior, or attending a post-grad program with proven collegiate ability.
