FAN VOTE: Second Half of Women's Golf All-Decade Team Announced

COLUMBUS, Ohio – The final three former student-athletes for the Ohio Dominican Women's Golf All-Decade team are revealed.

After 800-plus responses in a weeklong fan voting process, the trio of Amanda Costanzo (2009-13), Jamie Ellison Brewer (2012-15), and Erin Smiddy (2013-17) are three of six all-decade members announced.

From 2009 through 2017, the trio helped ODU women's golf to six team tournament championships. Costanzo helped guide the 2009-10 team to the second-best season winning percentage in school history (.644). The duo of Ellison and Smiddy were members of the 2013-14 and 2014-15 Panther squads that have the fourth and fifth best season winning percentages.

The Ellison and Smiddy pair also helped ODU to three of the program's top 10 single rounds. The Panthers' fall 2013 and 2014 rosters also produced three top 10 school marks for 36 holes.


Costanzo helped catapult the Panthers into the Division II era, competing for the Black & Gold from 2009-13. The Silver Lake, Ohio native had a career scoring average of 87.0, which ranks ninth all-time at ODU.

With three career top five finishes, Costanzo is tied for the fourth most in school history. Two of her top five finishes came as a freshman, which also had her best season scoring average, 86.3. She was named the 2009-10 ODU Golfer of the Year.

Costanzo appeared in 68 rounds over four years, ranking seventh on the ODU all-time list. Her 16 top-20 finishes are sixth-most in school history. Costanzo's best individual finish came at a tournament hosted by Walsh University during the 2009-10 season.


Ellison is the only Panther golfer to qualify for the NCAA Tournament, doing so in 2014 and 2016. The Mason, Ohio native was a four-time ODU Golfer of the Year and three-time all-conference honoree as well.

Ellison holds a bevy of school records, including career and season scoring averages. Her career mark of 80.67 is best in school history, and she owns three of the top four scoring seasons at ODU, including the top mark, 78.83 in 2015-16.

With 31 top 20 finishes, Ellison ranks first all-time at ODU. She also has 13 top-10's and eight top-five's, both of which are also atop the school record book.

Ellison is the only three-time tournament winner in ODU history, as she won medalist honors on three occasions in 2014. She has eight of the 10 best individual round totals, including 71, which she did three times and ranks second all-time at ODU. Ellison is the 36- and 54-hole school record holder with totals of 146 and 234, respectively.


Smiddy finished with a career scoring average of 85.09, ranking inside the top five in ODU's women's golf history. The Liberty Township, Ohio native had her best scoring season in 2016-17, 80.86, which also earned her ODU's Golfer of the Year and Tee-to-Green awards.

Twice, Smiddy carded a round of 74 or better. Her personal best score of 73 is tied for eighth on ODU's all-time list. Her 74, which came in the same tournament as her career-best round, the 2017 Capital Purple & White Invite, is tied for 10th all-time at ODU. Combining the two rounds, Smiddy's personal-best 36-hole total of 147 is second lowest in school history and marked one of her two individual wins in 2017.

Smiddy's name appears three times on ODU's top 10 list for 54-hole scores as well. Her best total of 236 came in 2017, which is fourth in school history.
