By Jayson Henderson

MANHATTAN, Kan. – Kansas State junior women’s golfer Carla Bernat has been named a Second Team All-American by the Women’s Golf Coaches Association of America (WGCA), the organization announced Friday.

Bernat, from Castellon, Spain, is the first Wildcat in program history to receive WGCA All-American honors. This marks her second consecutive year on the second team, having earned the accolade last season while at Tulane. She is one of four Big 12 golfers selected and one of two on the second team, alongside Texas’ Farah O’Keefe.

In her inaugural season with K-State, Bernat set a new school record for single-season scoring average at 70.90. She also achieved five of the program’s top 11 54-hole scores and three of the school’s top 26 18-hole scores.

Under first-year head coach Stew Burke, Bernat played a pivotal role in K-State’s season, which included four top-five finishes and a tournament victory at the White Sands Invitational.
