California Golden Bear golfer Pia Halbig earned her second All-American recognition of the season being named to the Golfweek third team in post season honors announced by the publication. The All-American teams are determined by players' order in Golfweek/Sagarin College Rankings.
Golfweek released their list of post-season honorees with ten players on the first team, ten on the second team, a ten player third team, and 20 honorable mentions.
Halbig, a first team All-Pac-10 selection, finished the season ranked No. 25 as an individual in the Golfweek rankings. She was an honorable mention for the NGCA All-America team in honors released earlier this month. Halbig just completed her sophomore season at Cal, setting the class record in stroke average with a 73.0.
