BURBANK — Emily Tubert is having the time of her life.
In the midst of her freshman season at the University of Arkansas, Tubert — who graduated from Burroughs High in May — is enjoying success with the Razorbacks women's golf team.
"Working with my teammates and the coaches has just been a awesome experience," Tubert said. "I just love it here and I'm really enjoying competing and traveling with the team."
Earning accolades is something that Tubert has received a great deal of since picking up the sport a few years ago. She earned another prestigious honor Wednesday, when she was named to the Rolex Junior All-America First Team.
It is Tubert's second time earning All-American honors, her first on the first team.
"It's a great honor to be named an All-American," Tubert said. "The last time I won it I was a junior [at Burroughs], and I was an honorable mention. Now to make the first team is something that I'm very proud of.
