The accolades keep coming for Sara Byrne in her senior year at the University of Miami as she scooped the 2024 Best Female Student-Athlete and Female Scholar Athlete awards at the Hurricane Honors.

Byrne has enjoyed a trophy-laden final campaign for the Canes. Including the two golfer of the month awards she has won, the Douglas native won back-to-back collegiate events, shooting a 54-hole scoring record at the Hurricane Invitational while she also has four further top-10 finishes.

Byrne was also named on the 2023-24 Spring ANNIKA Award presented by Stifel Watch List. The ANNIKA Award presented by Stifel is given annually to the top female Division I collegiate golfer.

She has etched her name into not only the Miami program record books, but also the NCAA women’s golf record books as her 54-hole score of 197 (-19) at the Hurricane Invitational ranks first in program history and is currently tied for third for lowest individual 54-hole score in NCAA women’s golf history.

Byrne’s season stroke average currently sits at 69.78, which would shatter the Miami program record (71.00 – Renate Grimstad) and rank fifth in the NCAA record book.
