CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Charleston Southern's Ellen Hume and Andriel Aimua were recognized among the Big South's annual award winners as the conference office announced the 2018-19 women's golf postseason awards on Monday morning.
Hume earned All-Conference and All-Freshman recognition, while Aimua was honored on the Big South's All-Academic Team to cap a season where the Buccaneers finished sixth at the conference tournament held on April 12-13 at The Patriot at Grand Harbor in Ninety Six, S.C.
Hume consistently sat among the Big South leaders in stroke average in her inaugural campaign at Charleston Southern. The London, England native entered the Big South Championships sitting tied for fifth overall in stroke average at 73.20 per round and finished sixth overall at the conference's penultimate championship event.
Hume was a three-time Big South Freshman of the Week recipient as voted on by the conference office, earning the honest after posting a 3-0 mark in Match play back on October 18, winning the Kiawah Spring Classic on February 28, and posting the top finish for the Bucs at the Edisto Island Invitational on April 5.
Hume's honors marked the fifth consecutive season the Bucs have had an honoree on the Big South All-Conference team dating back to 2015. Her appearance on the All-Freshman team was the first time CSU has had someone recognized on the team dating back to 2015 when both Hayley McNeill and Emelie Flink were honored.
Aimua posted a 3.25 GPA while majoring in Accounting at CSU. The Woodbury, Minn. native earns All-Academic recognition for the first time in her collegiate career and finished the conference's regular season ranking tied for 14th in the Big South in stroke average at 76.65.
CSU (+65) finished sixth overall in the field as the Bucs were limited to four players counting toward the team score after having a player withdraw in the first round. CSU put together its best round of the tournament in round two to move into fourth but faded down the stretch to finish the final round at +25 to card a 929 for the tournament.
