Heath, Wallin, Williamson Earn W. Golf All-ACC Honors

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (seminoles.com) — Florida State’s Charlotte Heath, Beatrice Wallin and Amelia Williamson have been named to the All-ACC Women’s Golf Team for the second time in school history — and for the second time under head coach Amy Bond — or more Seminoles deserved all conference awards. Wallin is the fourth player in school history to earn All-ACC honors three or more times (2019, 2021, 2022), while Heath is now a two-time All-ACC honoree and Williamson has earned that honor for the first time in her career.

For the Seminoles, it marks the second time in school history that at least three golfers have been named to the All-ACC team in the same season. Florida State had a school record of four players – Matilda Castren, Lydia Gumm, Kim Metraux and Morgane Metraux – who received All-ACC honors in 2017.

“We are extremely happy for each of our three players who have been named to the 2022 All-ACC team,” said Bond. “Each of the three players has been instrumental in our success this season and it’s great to see them receiving the recognition their game has earned on the pitch. Not only are Charlotte, Bea and Amelia outstanding golfers, they are all wonderful people who continue to grow as women just as they have grown as golfers during their careers in the state of Florida.”

Wallin, who competes second in school history in the NCAA Tallahassee Regional Championship with a 71.13 batting average, has now received All-ACC honors in 2019, 2021 and 2022. The league did not select an All-ACC team in 2020. Wallin joins a select group of Seminole golfers, including Matilda Castren (2014, 2016, 2017), Kristin Tamulis (2001, 2002, 2003), and Caroline Westrup (2006, 2007, 2008, 2009) as Seminoles who are at least all- Have received ACC honors three times.

Heath, who ranks fourth in school history with a career average of 72.57, is now a two-time honoree. She has earned the honor as both a freshman and sophomore, joining only Westrup as the Seminoles who have earned All-ACC honors in their first two seasons in Tallahassee. Heath has four top 10 finishes this year, including a tied fifth at the Valspar Augusta Invitational and a tied 10thth place in the ACC Championship.

Williamson is the Seminoles’ leader with a career-high batting average of 71.91 this season. She received the honor for the first time in her career and is the 24thth since the Seminoles joined the league in 1992, another Florida State player has earned All-ACC honors. Williamson won her first singles championship of her career at the Florida State Match Up in February and has also had four top-10 finishes this year.

Bond, who was an All-ACC honoree herself in 1998, has selected at least one player for the All-ACC team each year the team was selected, during her 12 seasons as Florida State coach. A total of 21 Seminoles have earned All-ACC honors in their 12 seasons as the Seminoles head coach.

“The girls certainly deserve all the credit for their performances on the course and their All-ACC honors,” said Bond. “I’m also happy for our staff – Robert Duck and Justin Fetcho – who work every day with all of our girls to help them become All-ACC players. This is a great group of trainers to work with; a group that loves coaching and working with our players.”

The state of Florida will host the NCAA Tallahassee Regional May 9-11 at the Seminole Legacy Golf Course. Entry to the championship and on-site parking are free.

In 31 years in the league, Florida State has had 39 All-ACC selections and at least one All-ACC selection in each of the past 21 seasons in which the All-ACC women’s golf team has been selected. With three selections in 2022, the Seminoles have won multiple selections ten times since the 2001 season.
