GCAA Release

The University of Wyoming men’s golf team has been named an All-Academic Team by the Golf Coaches Association of America (GCAA) for the fourth-consecutive season. The Cowboys were one of 81 Division I programs and 141 men’s golf programs overall to earn the honor presented by Farmers Insurance.    

“I’m proud of our kids’ efforts in the classroom and for all the travel we do it is very impressive to earn this award,” head coach Joe Jensen said.  “We have a culture of getting work done in the classroom and it is a great feeling to earn this award.”

To be eligible for GCAA All-Academic Team honors, a program must post a combined grade-point average above 3.0 during the academic year. Wyoming was one of three Mountain West school to earn the award. Five Cowboys earned Academic All-MW honors with two student-athletes earning MW Scholar Athlete.

"I'm very appreciative of our faculty and administration, especially the Academic Support office," Jensen said. "Our student-athletes receive tremendous support and guidance from them.”
