LARAMIE, Wyo. -

The University of Wyoming Cowboy golf team was recently honored as one of the top academic teams in the country, by being selected as a Golf Coaches Association of America (GCAA) All-Academic Team.

The Cowboys are among the top-64 teams in the country in terms of average team grade-point average. A total of 64 teams were named All-Academic Teams by achieving at least a 3.0 average GPA. The Cowboy golf team achieved an average GPA of 3.18 this past season.

"It is nice to be recognized as one of the top academic teams in the country," UW Director of Golf Joe Jensen said. "I am proud of our guys and am happy about the direction our program is headed.

"This past season was rewarding for our program. Gabe Maier had a lot of success on the golf course and qualified for NCAA Regionals, then we had Phil (Henzlik), Gabe (Maier) and Zach (Zaremba) selected as All-America Scholars. Now, the entire team has been honored as one of the top academic teams in the country. We have everyone coming back for the 2010-11 season and are looking forward to getting back together next week."

This award from the GCAA comes on the heels of the announcement in July that Cowboy golfers Phil Henzlik, Gabe Maier and Zach Zaremba were named Cleveland Golf/Srixon All-America Scholars from the GCAA.
