Des Moines, Iowa- The Midwest Collegiate Conference has announced its women's golf all-conference honors.

St. Ambrose senior Kelly Jansen (Bettendorf, Iowa) was voted as the Player of the Year.

"With the dedication Kelly put into golf throughout the year, this is a great ending. She is highly dedicated in the classroom and on the golf course and was really focused on her practice and playing time. Kelly is very deserving of this award," said St. Ambrose Head Coach Mike Orfitelli.

Orfitelli was selected by his peers as the MCC Coach of the Year.

"This is an outstanding recognition of a veteran coach. The players' performance this year reflects the dedication and commitment Mike has to the program," said St. Ambrose Athletic Director Ray Shovlain.
