UCLA's Carrie Forsyth and Erynne Lee earned Pac-12 Conference Coach of the Year and Freshman of the Year, respectively, the league announced Tuesday.

This season, Forsyth guided the Bruins to a nation-leading seven tournament victories, including the program's seventh NCAA Regional title and an 11th straight podium finish. For most of the season, the Bruins were the nation's consensus No.1 ranked team.

Last month, Forsyth was voted the NGCA West Region Coach of the Year.

Her Coach of the Year selection marks the fifth time she has been voted the winner. No other coach in UCLA women's golf history has been named COY more than twice.

In her first collegiate season, Lee led the Bruins in scoring (72.5) and finished 2012 ranked fifth nationally. She won the Pacific Coast Collegiate championship and recorded five other Top 10 results. Her 94% counter ratio was a team leader.

Last month, Lee was voted NGCA Freshman of the Year and earned First-Team All-America honors. She becomes the fourth UCLA player to earn either conference Newcomer or Freshman of the Year honors, joining Yvonne Choe, Tiffany Joh and Hannah Jun.

Arizona State's Giulia Molinaro was voted the 2012 Pac-12 Player of the Year.
