Becomes first-ever men's golfer to earn back-to-back awards

 

            JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (July 14, 2008) - In his time as a member of the ETSU men's golf team, recent graduate Gareth Shaw (Lisburn, Northern Ireland) watched his teammate Rhys Davies (Bridgend, Wales) rewrite the record books on the course. Well, Shaw made some history of his own last week.

           

            Shaw earned his second straight Cleveland Golf All-American Scholar award, becoming the first ever ETSU player to be named to that list two years in a row. Shaw, who enjoyed his own successes on the course with an All-America selection, an Atlantic Sun individual championship, and a conference player of the year award, reached several impressive criteria to receive the award.

 

            A total of 96 players earned the honor in Division I, as the Golf Coaches Association of America makes the selections. To be eligible for Cleveland Golf All-America Scholar status an individual must be a junior or senior academically and compete in at least two full years at the collegiate level, participate in 70-percent of his team's competitive rounds or compete in the NCAA Championships, have a stroke average under 76.0 in Division I and maintain a minimum cumulative grade-point average of 3.2. A recipient must also be of high moral character and be in good standing at his college or university.
