May 26, 2012

ATHENS, Ga. --- Georgia golfers Emilie Burger and Marta Silva Zamora were named All-America by the National Golf Coaches Association (NGCA) at its annual banquet Friday evening after the conclusion of the NCAA Championships in Franklin, Tenn. Burger was tabbed second-team All-America, while Silva Zamora secured honorable mention recognition.

In the process, Silva Zamora became just the second four-time All-American in Georgia women's golf history, joining Shauna Estes (1997-2000). The senior from Compostela de Santiago, Spain, also earned first-team recognition as a sophomore and junior and honorable mention status as a freshman.

Burger produced the Bulldogs' best stroke average in 2011-12, a 73.28 mark that ranks seventh in school history. The junior from Hoschton, Ga., and Mill Creek High School also led Georgia counting rounds at 98.3 percent and notched three top-10 and seven top-20 individual finishes in 10 tournaments.

Silva Zamora recorded a 73.31 average, amazingly just a single stroke more than Burger in 29 rounds played during 2011-12 – 2125 strokes for Burger vs. 2126 for Silva Zamora. The 2011 National Player of the Year, Silva Zamora leaves Georgia with three of the top-10 averages in school history, No. 1 in 2010-11, No. 3 in 2009-10 and No. 8 in 2011-12.

This season marks the 15th time in Georgia history that two or more golfers earned NGCA All-America honors.
