MINNEAPOLIS (Gophersports.com) – Emie Peronnin’s first campaign with the University of Minnesota women’s golf program was certainly a memorable one for the freshman.

In addition to helping the Gophers earn just the seventh NCAA berth in program history, the Fréjus, France native set a new school freshman record with a season scoring average of 77.13.

Peronnin, whose scoring average ranks 20th all-time at Minnesota, was one of four Gophers to post top-20 all-time averages this season. Sarinee Thitiratanakorn’s 75.86 ranks ninth all-time at Minnesota, Banchalee Theinthong’ 75.77 ranks seventh and Carmen Laguna’s 74.19 stands as the new school season scoring average record.

The freshman competed in all 11 tournaments and 32 rounds for the Gophers during the 2013-14 season. Peronnin recorded three top-20 individual performances and tied for 18th at the UCF Challenge for her top finish of the season. She shot an even 216 (76-71-69) at the event – a performance that sits tied for fifth all-time in the Minnesota 54-hole records.

Peronnin also finished tied for 20th at both the Las Vegas Collegiate Showdown and the BYU at Entrada Classic – the latter helped Minnesota to its first team win in six seasons.

Following the season, she was named Gopher Women’s Golf’s  Freshman of the Year for her contributions over the season.
