Seniors Allison Hamilton and Lauren Stong earned most valuable player honors for the Boston University women's golf team in 2008-09. Hamilton and Stong captained the Terriers to a second-place finish at the 2009 America East Women's Golf Championships, which included an impressive two-day showing with their best round of golf.

On day of the AE championship, the Terriers shot a 333 and then improved on day two with their best round of the season, carding a 331. They finished second overall, with sophomore Ana Johnson placing second individually overall. Hamilton improved by four strokes from day one to day two to place 11th overall, while Stong was just three spots behind her at 14th.

On April 19, Hamilton sat atop the Terriers' leaderboard at the Roar-EE Invitational, in the squad's final tune-up before the AE championships. One week earlier, Stong had been named the America East Performer of the Week after placing 14th at the Brown Invitational.

In addition to the team's athletic success, Hamilton and Stong were leaders in the classroom this year as well, as the squad was recognized for being among the top academically performing teams within its sport in the NCAA with a perfect Academic Progress Rate (APR) score.
