Cardwell completed her bachelors in Math Education and a minor in Russian Studies at ECU in May and had a perfect 4.0 GPA.
In her final season on the links, Cardwell earned All-GAC Honorable Mention honors. She played in 10-of-11 tournaments for the Lady Tigers and led the team with an 82.8 average.
Besides her time studying and on the golf course, Cardwell was the ECU Honors Student Association Treasurer, an Honors Student Association Peer Mentor and Math Club Secretary.
