While she has moved on to play in college, the high school accolades are still coming for former Aledo Ladycat golfer Cheyenne Knight.
Knight was recently named the North Texas High Golf Coaches Association 2014-15 Player of the Year. She was also placed on their Honor Team.
The NTHSGCA Honor Team is comprised of the top 10 golfers from all classifications across the North Texas area.
Knight ended her high school career at Aledo by winning back-to-back University Interscholastic League state championships. She was the Class 4A state champion in 2014, and after Aledo was reclassified into 5A this season she won it again.
“Cheyenne works so hard on her game, and she is such a great young lady,” said former Aledo coach Greg Nelson.
“She deserves honors like this and I feel certain this will continue at Alabama.”
Nelson retired at the end of the 2015 season. Jeff Lemons, who led the Ladycats to back-to-back state softball championships, has taken over as golf coach.
Knight, meanwhile, has moved on and is a freshman at the University of Alabama. She committed to the school during her junior year at Aledo.
Knight was dominant on the high school circuit. In four rounds at the state tournament, she was 1-under-par 287, which included a pair of 70s under the most intense pressure a high school golfer can experience.
With Knight leading the way, the Ladycats finished second in the state as a team this past season. They were fourth in 2014.
Knight also had great success on the American Junior Golf Association Tour. In 2014 she was named an AJGA Junior All-American.
She has also been named to the USA Today All-USA Girls Golf Team.
Knight plans to major in communications at Alabama, and wants to play golf professionally. She and her new teammates opened the season this past weekend in the Mason Rudolph Championship at the Vanderbilt Legends Club in Franklin, Tennessee Sept. 18-20.
