Caroline Powers, from Bowling Green, was one of 24 athletes to earn the Big Ten Medal of Honor, the highest athletic award made by the conference. It goes to one male and one female athlete at a member school.
She recently completed her college career at Michigan State and is playing golf professionally.
In addition, Powers was honored with the Big Ten Sportsmanship Award for women's golf. She was also chosen as one of the 24 Outstanding Sportsmanship Award winners in the Big Ten from a group of nearly 300 Sportsmanship Award honorees recognized throughout the season.
Powers completed her career as the school's all-time record holder in scoring average (74.26) and owns the top three single-season scoring averages in program history, including her record 73.53 she set as a sophomore.
She is one of only two female student-athletes in Michigan State history to win the George Alderton MSU Female Athlete of the Year Award three times.

Tim Ahlberg, from Perrysburg High School, was a four-year letter winner and a three-year starter at goalkeeper for the North Park University men's soccer team.
He was recently named the College Conference of Illinois and Wisconsin man of the year.
"I am so humbled to receive this award. It is an honor to be recognized by the CCIW for the things I had the opportunity to be a part of," Ahlberg said. "This honor reflects more than just my own accomplishments; it reflects the people and the teams that have supported me, worked with me, and played alongside me throughout my time at North Park.
''It's the people that encourage you when you've got a test the next day, it's the feeling you get when you win a home soccer game in front of our fans, and it's the support system that North Park has for its students here that make it a great place to thrive."
In his four years, Ahlberg earned a cumulative grade point average of 3.91 and majored in business and economics with a concentration in accounting. He was recognized as North Park's 2013 distinguished senior and was a Fulbright Binational Business Exchange grant recipient.
Ahlberg also volunteered with the Special Olympics, was a small group bible study leader, and worked with University Ministries' homeless outreach program. In addition, he held leadership positions as a men's soccer team captain, president of the North Park Student Government Association, and a member of the University Business Club.
