ROSEMONT, Ill. – The Big Ten Conference office announced the women’s golf
All-Conference teams and individual award winners on Tuesday following the 2014 Big
Ten Women’s Golf Championships. Ohio State’s Jessica Porvasnik was named the Big Ten
Player of the Year and the Big Ten Freshman of the Year, while the Buckeyes’ Therese
Hession was tabbed the Big Ten Coach of the Year.

Porvasnik captured both individual honors after claiming the individual Big Ten
Championship, finishing the conference championships with a three-round score of
even-par 216 (73-72-71). Porvasnik completed the regular season with the highest
Sagarin rating of all Big Ten players (72.87). She became Ohio State’s first Player
of the Year winner since Kristen White in 2005 and its first Freshman of the Year
recipient since Kendall Prince in 2012.

Hession led Ohio State to its first Big Ten Championship since 2005. The Buckeyes
shot a 31-over par 895 team score at the Pete Dye Course, tying Michigan State for
the conference title.

The All-Big Ten first team features Michigan State’s Liz Nagel, Northwestern’s Hana
Lee and Kaitlin Park, Ohio State’s Zoe-Beth Brake and Porvasnik and Purdue’s Aurora
Kan. Earning second-team All-Big Ten honors were Illinois’ Ember Schuldt, Michigan
State’s Allyssa Ferrell, Northwestern’s Kacie Komoto and Elizabeth Szokol, Ohio
State’s Katja Pogacar and Penn State’s Ellen Ceresko.

The Big Ten also recognized 12 Sportsmanship Award honorees. The student-athletes
chosen are individuals who have distinguished themselves through sportsmanship and
ethical behavior. In addition, the student-athletes must be in good academic
standing and have demonstrated good citizenship outside of the sports-competition
