Edwardsville's Bock Returns
Edwardsville native Deanna Bock is returning home to finish her collegiate golf career at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville.
"It is exciting to be home, and I am looking forward to this year," said Bock.
Bock is a transfer from John A. Logan College, where she held a scoring average of 85. She placed 15th individually at the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) Women's Golf Championship in Shawnee, Okla., and was named to the all-tournament team. Bock received honorable mention All-American honors and was named to the All-Region 24 team.
"It is going to be nice to have a hometown girl," said SIUE Coach Larry Bennett. "She is going to be a big help to us and will make the team stronger off the bat."
Bock placed first individually at the Kentucky Wesleyan Women's Fall Invitational in 1999. She placed third at both the Lady Vols Eurotan Invitational in 2001 and the Mary M. O'Neil 1999 Rend Lake Classic Tournament.
Throughout her collegiate career, Bock has maintained a perfect grade point average and will be receiving SIUE's distinguished Provost Scholarship. While at John A. Logan, she made the President's list every term and was a Presidential Scholar.
Bock also has had several other accomplishments off the field. Bock was named to the NJCAA Academic All-American team, placed first in the John A. Logan College Foundation writing contest and was a 2001 United States Achievement Academy All-American Scholar.
