JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (July 10, 2006) - Though it may be summer break, the ETSU women's golf team continues to earn accolades for its accomplishments during the 2005-06 season. This time, the Lady Bucs were honored for their efforts in the classroom.

 

The National Golf Coaches Association announced Monday its 2005-06 All-Scholar Team GPA Award winner, as well as the Top 25 teams in the country. While South Carolina earned the top honor with a 3.677 grade point average, the Lady Bucs finish 23rd with an overall team GPA of 3.543.

 

"The girls made such an effort to meet their academic goal of a 3.4 GPA," said ETSU head coach Stefanie Reynolds. "I am extremely proud and excited for them that they surpassed their goal with a 3.54 GPA - especially with a wide variety of majors consisting of Physical Therapy, Economics, Sports Management, Business and Public Relations."
