Congratulations to St. Agnes Academy Alumna Rachel Heck ('20) who has been named The Commercial Appeal’s Memphis Sports Person of the Year for 2021.
And 2021 was quite a year for this young SAA alum!
Rachel became just the third freshman to sweep the NCAA golf postseason, winning her conference championship, her NCAA regional title and the national championship.She was only the second freshman to win the ANNIKA Award, given annually to the best women’s Division-I golfer.
Her scoring average over 25 rounds of college golf (69.76) is also the lowest in NCAA history. Rachel also made it to the semifinals of the U.S. Women’s Amateur and made the cut at the U.S. Women’s Open for the second time in four years. She finished the year at No. 3 in the women’s World Amateur Golf Rankings.
We look forward to following her accomplishments in 2022.
