Men's golf honored for work in classroom
The Golf Coaches Association of America recently announced the 2013 All-Academic Team and the South Dakota State men’s golf team is on the list for the fifth straight year.
The award, presented by Farmers Insurance, requires a team to have a combined overall GPA of 3.00 or higher. The Jackrabbits were the only Summit League member to be honored by the GCAA.
“I’m very proud of once again being recognized for our men’s team achieving a team GPA of 3.0. We have received this recognition every year the GCAA has put together this distinction. It is a testament to the types of student-athletes we have in our program and will work hard to carry on this tradition,” said head coach Jared Baszler.
The Jacks begin classes August 26 and open the season August 31 in Victor, Idaho, for the Dual at the Tetons with Weber State.Read the full release from the GCAA here.
