Women’s Golf Finishes Third in WGCA All-Scholar Team GPA Award

Coral Springs, Fla. – Having already seen five golfers earn Scholar All-America recognition, it should come as no surprise Lynn University's women's golf program was honored as one of the top 25 teams in the nation for team GPA by the Women's Golf Coaches Association. The Fighting Knights boasted the third-best GPA in the country among all NCAA Division II programs.

The University of Nebraska Omaha women's golf team has been named the recipient of the 2017-18 WGCA All-Scholar Team GPA Award. The award recognizes the women's collegiate golf program with the highest collective average team GPA which includes all of the team's student-athletes for the 2017-18 season. Omaha's six team members had an average GPA of 3.949.

Leading Division II was Lindenwood University, as the team's eight members averaged a 3.886 GPA, while Ithaca College led Division III with a 3.801 average GPA.

Lynn posted a 3.867 grade-point average for the 2017-18 academic year, highest among all Sunshine State Conference institutions and the third-best in Division II behind Lindenwood and Augustana (South Dakota). Across all three NCAA divisions, Lynn's GPA ranked fourth in the nation.

Last week, all five Fighting Knights in the starting lineup were honored as WGCA All-American Scholars for having a GPA of 3.50 or above.
