CARDINAL CORNER . . . The Women's Golf Coaches Association named Stanford senior Albane Valenzuela as the recipient of the prestigious Edith Cummings Munson Award on Tuesday afternoon. The award is presented annually to the Women's Division I golfer who is an upperclassman and both a WGCA All-American Scholar and All-American. Valenzuela, by virtue of her 4.021 cumulative GPA in political science, was honored as Stanford's second recipient of the award. Hilary Homeyer (who went on to win the Women's U.S. Open) won the award in 1999. Valenzuela was a WGCA first team All-American this season in addition to her All-American Scholar honors . . .
