Alisa Clark, Madeline Marck-Sherk and Kate Williamson of FGCU’s women’s golf team have been named to the 2017-18 Women’s Golf Coaches Association All-American Scholars team.
The award is credited as one of the most stringent awards in all of college athletics, according to FGCU Athletics. The award requires a minimum of a 3.5 GPA, along with participation in at least 50% of tournaments.
“I am so proud of these individuals for being named WGCA All-American Scholars,” FGCU head women’s golf coach Sarah Trew said. “They carry on a long tradition of academic excellence at FGCU. All three of these young ladies possess a strength in time management that I believe allows them to be so successful in the classroom and on the golf course. I cannot thank them enough for their hard work, dedication and the precedent they continue to set as student-athletes.”
This marks the girls’ second year in a row receiving the honor, and they remain three of only 12 student athletes in program history to ever earn the award.
