[JULY 17, 2004]  NORMAL -- Illinois State women's golfers Ashlee Johnson, Samantha Richdale and Ashlie Rose have been named 2003-04 National Golf Coaches Association All-American Scholars. They are among 318 of the top women's collegiate golfers who have been recognized.

Johnson, a biology major, finished the 2003-04 school year with a 3.57 cumulative grade-point average. She played in 23 tournament rounds with a personal low-round score of 74. She had nine rounds in the 70s, two top-20 finishes, two top-15 finishes and a top-10 finish.

Richdale, who has a 3.47 grade-point average as biochemistry major, earned medalist honors for the second straight year. She helped lead her team to the 2004 Missouri Valley Conference team championship. She and her teammates advanced to the NCAA Central Golf Regional and tied for ninth place, just behind the eight teams that qualified for the finals. Richdale's sixth-place tie in the regional allowed her to advance to the finals as an individual. She ended the season with 32 rounds in the 70s, 10 top-20 finishes, eight top-10 finishes and won three tournament titles. This is the second time she has been named to the National Golf Coaches Association team.
