ROCK HILL, S.C. — Lincoln Memorial University senior Lindsay Davis (Tazewell, Tenn.) has been tabbed with All-South Atlantic Conference second team laurels, the league office announced on Thursday with the unveiling of the SAC women’s golf postseason awards. It marks the second All-SAC plaudit of Davis’s career following her honorable mention selection for the 2013-14 campaign.

Davis appeared in 18 rounds and nine events this season, leading the Lady Railsplitters with a 78.22 stroke average, ranking fifth in the South Atlantic Conference in raw scoring average. Davis nailed down six top-10 finishes and three top-five runs, completing the final regular season tournament schedule of her tenure in the Blue and Gray with a 496-113 win-loss record.

The Tazewell, Tenn. native fired rounds of 79 and 78 to tie for seventh place in the season-opening Anderson Invitational, and then followed that up by finishing in sole possession of third place at the Etowah Intercollegiate with 75+76=151 (+7). She cut one stroke off of that total and earned her second straight top-five finish just a week later at the Tusculum Fall Classic, tying for fifth with back-to-back rounds of 75.

Davis ended the regular season with three consecutive top-10 turns, tying for 10th at both the Southeast Kentucky Invitational and the Wingate Intercollegiate Challenge. Davis signed for rounds of 79 and 78 in the Wingate Challenge. Davis completed the season with a tie for 5th at the Agnes McAmis Memorial with rounds of 79 and 76. She beat out a season-high 91 golfers in the Tusculum-hosted event.

Davis’s 78.2 stroke average is the second-lowest mark in Lincoln Memorial’s single-season history, trailing only Brittany McCown’s 2011-12 season (77.7) for the program watermark. With her final appearance in the South Atlantic Conference Championship looming on the horizon, Davis has already staked her claim as one of the best to ever play for the Lady Railsplitters. In 75 career rounds, Davis is second in school history with an 81.55 stroke average and sixth in won-lost percentage with a .649 mark. She has collected 10 top-10 finishes in her prolific career.

The South Atlantic Conference Championship begins on Sunday, April 12 in Sevierville, Tenn. The SAC’s 12 women’s golf programs will descend on Sevierville Golf Club for 54 holes, with a champion to be crowned on Tuesday, April 14. The winner earns an automatic berth to the NCAA Division II Southeast Regional in Savannah, Ga.
