The Saint Stephen’s Athletic Hall of Fame was established in 1998. By December 2009, 146 alumni and 3 coaches had been inducted (see complete list here).
In 2016, after a 6-year hiatus, the criteria for nomination were revised and the AHOF was reinstated. The tradition’s roots remain intact, the AHOF henceforth continuing to honor Falcon student athletes and coaches who excelled in their respective sports or coaching roles and who brought recognition and distinction to the School through their conduct both on and off the fields, courts, courses and track. This recognition celebrates and promotes the spirit, pride and sense of community at Saint Stephen’s and serves as an historical account of the many outstanding athletic participants at the School through the years.
Carolin played golf at Saint Stephen’s while training at IMG Academy and was recruited by the University of Central Florida. She turned professional immediately upon college graduation and joined the Symetra Tour (“the road to the LPGA”). She is currently taking a year off from Symetra play to get her MBA at Rollins College.
Prior to college, Carolin was a 5-year member of the Austrian National Team, finishing 3rd in the 2008 Austrian National Championship. She excelled on the Future Collegians World Tour (FCWT), winning the championship in 2008 and named FCWT All-American. College highlights include Carolin's being named All-Conference USA in '10 and helping lead the Knights to their first tournament championship since 2002. In 2012, she was again named All-Conference USA and was top-finisher for the Knights in NCAA East Regional competition. She was elected captain of the UCF ladies’ golf team in 2013, after having been selected to UCF’s prestigious Captain’s Council in ’10 – an organization teaching members how to be better leaders and how to facilitate teammates becoming leaders in their own right. While much of her undergraduate years were spent in the classroom and on the links, Carolin still found time to give back to the community through volunteer work in a variety of community service projects including Habitat for Humanity, Autism Walks and Junior Achievement programs.
In 2014, Carolin was a cast member on Big Break Myrtle Beach, the 22nd season of the Golf Channel's popular television series. She is also co-creator of a social network called GLBrain.com, an internet platform providing users with the ability to start their own blogs about vital issues like politics, finances and the environment.
