Cowboy Golf Claims GCAA All-Academic Team Award

July 31, 2015

NORMAN, Okla. - For the fourth-consecutive season, the University of Wyoming men’s golf program has been named All-Academic by the Golf Coaches Association of America (GCAA), the organization announced earlier this week.

“I have to give a lot of credit to our student-athletes,” UW head golf coach Joe Jensen said. “For how much we travel and the competition we have in this sport, this award really shows how much work they do in the classroom. Not only the kids but I am also thankful for the faculty and administration in Academics that help our student-athletes. It has always been a team approach when it comes to excelling in the classroom and the golf course.”

Wyoming came just short of the President’s Special Recognition list which is awarded for a team grade-point average of 3.5 or better. The Cowboys finished the year with a 3.41 grade-point average.

“This award makes me very proud of our kids. Every team member helps when it comes to awards like this and I hope we can continue this success in the classroom for many 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. A program must post a combined grade-point average above 3.0 during the academic year. The Cowboys were one of 90 teams honored from Division I and just one of three teams from the MW.
