ETSU posts 3.76 GPA to earn President’s Special Recognition honor

NORMAN, Okla. (June 17, 2019) – For the 11th consecutive season, the ETSU men’s golf team received Golf Coaches Association of America (GCAA) Team Academic honors, as the committee announced its award winners on Wednesday. 

ETSU, who has received the award each year since its establishment in 2009, earned President’s Special Recognition for posting a team grade point average over 3.50 this past 2018-19 season. Overall, the men’s golf team registered a 3.76 GPA. ETSU was just one of 17 Division I programs to earn President’s Special Recognition, including the only program from the Southern Conference. 

All six Buccaneers were placed on the SoCon Honor Roll this past year, while senior Geuntae Kim (Daegu, South Korea) posted a perfect 4.0 mark. 

The Bucs were the GCAA Academic National Champion in 2009. 

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.
