MONTGOMERY, Ala. – Senior Vanessa Leiterman was named All-Region with the release of the Women's Golf Coaches Association awards this week.
Leiterman was named first-team All-Region in the East Region. She is the second Lady Hawk to earn WGCA All-Region honors. LeeAnn Cahoon was named first-team All-Region in 2015.

As a junior, she became the second Lady Hawk to win a tournament. This season, she finished in the top-10 in four of the Lady Hawks' nine tournaments, including a tie for second in her final event of the season.
During her two seasons, she turned in three of the top-nine three-round totals in program history, the second best 36-hole total in program history and three of the top-nine single round totals.
