Arguably one of the most successful women's golfers at East Carolina, three-time All-Conference USA performer Amber Littman joins the Pirate staff as an assistant coach in 2011.
Littman, who helped the Pirates to four consecutive NCAA Regional appearances, closed out her collegiate career winning three tournament titles and recorded 26 top-20 placements in 46 career events, including 14 top-10 finishes. Her 75.88 career stroke average ranks as the fourth lowest in school history and she is one of six ECU golfers to win a pair of titles in the same season (2007-08).
The Stoney Creek, N.C. native splashed onto the scene in 2007 by claiming a share of first place in her first collegiate tournament at the Myrtle Beach Classic, where she carded a pair of 71's for a 36-hole score of 142. She capped off her fall semester with her second title, this time at the UAB Fall Beach Blast with a one-over 145 (70-75). In the spring she added a pair of top-10 finishes and closed out the season with five top-10's, a 75.10 stroke average, and was named C-USA Freshman-of-the-Year and earned first-team all-conference accolades.
Littman continued her stellar play during her sophomore season posting five-straight top-15 finishes during the fall including a share of fourth place at the Landfall Tradition with a six-over par 222. In just her second event back from shoulder surgery, she claimed a share of third place at the JMU Eagle Landing and finished the spring with four more top-25 placements. Her 76.36 stroke average and eight top-20 finishes cemented her second-straight First-Team All C-USA honor.
As a junior, Littman posted a 76.31 stroke average in 13 events and claimed her third individual title at the Tri-Match against No. 3 Duke and No. 30 South Carolina at the Ironwood Country Club with a five-under par 139 (71-68). In all she had four top-20 finishes, the fewest in her four-year career.
Bouncing back from a sub-par year by her standards, Littman wrapped up her collegiate career with eight top-20's, including three top-10's and a 75.65 stroke average that culminated with Second-Team All C-USA accolades as a senior. She picked up her third career C-USA Golfer-of-the-Week honors following her three-over par 147 (75-72) at the UNCG Starmount Fall Classic, where she finished tied for fifth place, just six shots out of medalist honors.
Off the course, Littman was a four-time C-USA Commissioner's Honor Roll and seven-time ECU Director of Athletics Honor Roll recipient. Littman, who is majoring in criminal justice with a minor in alcohol and drug studies, is scheduled to graduate in December of 2011.
