ATHENS, Ga. — Georgia’s Caroline Craig has been named to the SEC Community Service team for women’s golf, the league office recently announced.
Craig, a sophomore from Sautee Nachoochee, Ga., was active with community service projects both in Athens and her hometown. A two-year member of the Georgia Way ambassador, she has taken part in numerous initiatives including: the Food Bank of Northeast Georgia’s Hunger Bowl; the Dawgs for Pups coat drive, which collected 437 new or gently used coats for local youth with the help of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Athens; Bigger Vision of Athens toiletries collections for those in homelessness; writing encouraging letters to fellow student-athletes as part of a mental health initiative; White County Backpack buddies, which helps ensure students have nutritious meals over weekends; volunteering at Helen Baptist Church; co-leading Fields of Faith as part of the FCA in 2019; and assisting with girls’ golf clinics at Innsbruck Golf Club.
On the golf course, Craig has competed in six of 10 tournaments for the Bulldogs during the 2020-21 season. She has compiled a 75.22 stroke average, with a trio of par-or-better efforts over 18 rounds. She equaled career-best round at Georgia with a 3-under 69 to open the Liz Murphey Fall Collegiate Classic en route to career-low 54-hole tally of even-par 216. Craig finished seventh in the fall edition of the LMCC.
