Coral Springs, Fla. – A conference championship, NCAA South Regional title and NCAA National Championship appearance proves Lynn University's women's golf team has the chops on the course. With the announcement of the Fighting Knights boasting the third-highest grade-point average among all Division II programs by the Women's Golf Coaches Association, Lynn proves it has more than enough chops in the classroom.
The University of New Mexico women's golf team has been named the recipient of the 2018-19 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 2018-19 season.
