Men's golf earns President's Special Recognition
Tuesday, August 17, 2010
NORMAN, Okla. (August 17, 2010) - The ETSU men's golf team continues to pile up academic honors as they earned President's Special Recognition status for their academic achievements, the Golf Coaches Association of America (GCAA) announced on Monday.
"I am really proud of the guys for doing such a great job in the classroom once again this year," said ETSU head coach Fred Warren. "This group of guys certainly represents the word student-athlete."
ETSU was one of just ten Division I schools to earn President's Special Recognition after finishing 2009-10 with the required team GPA of 3.50 or better. The Bucs also earned a spot on the All-Academic Team (3.0 or better GPA). The team finished the year with an impressive 3.61 cumulative team GPA, only five-hundredths of a point behind this year's Academic National Champion, DePaul (3.66 GPA). Additionally, ETSU joins Mercer as the only two schools in the Atlantic Sun Conference to earn President's Special Recognition.
The award comes one year after the Bucs earned the inaugural GCAA Academic National Championship for earning the highest team GPA in the country.
Previously this summer, Rhys Enoch (Cornwall, England), Paul O'Kane (Castledawson, Northern Ireland), and Seamus Power (Waterford, Ireland) were named Cleveland Golf/Srixon All-America Scholars just last month. Also, each member of the team earned Atlantic Sun All-Academic honors.
To be eligible for GCAA All-Academic Team honors a college of university must submit the grade points earned and hours attempted for each player on its official squad list for the academic year.
