Bucs post team GPA of 3.223 in 2012-13

NORMAN, Okla. (Aug. 1, 2013) – The East Tennessee State University men’s golf team was one of 143 programs to receive academic honors from the Golf Coaches Association of America (GCAA), which was released by the organization late Wednesday.

The Bucs posted a team GPA of 3.223 in 2012-13, while five ETSU golfers registered individual GPAs above 3.0.

Brown (Division I), Post (Division II), Greensboro College (Division III), Embry Riddle - AZ (NAIA), Scottsdale CC (NJCAA DI) and South Mountain CC (NJCAA DII) were named Academic National Champions for their respective divisions. Brown posted the highest overall team GPA for all divisions with a 3.74.

This is the fifth year of the award, and the 143 teams announced in 2012-13 marked a new high. The Bucs have won the award in each of the five years.

To be eligible for GCAA All-Academic Team honors a college or university must submit the GPAs for each player on its official squad list for the academic year.
