KU men’s golf earns GCAA All-Academic Team honors for second-straight year
LAWRENCE, Kan. – Not only did the University of Kansas men’s golf team earn a bid to the NCAA Regionals for the second-straight season, but the Jayhawks continued to show a great deal of success in the classroom during the two-year span and earned their second-consecutive spot on the Golf Coaches Association of America (GCAA) All-Academic Team Wednesday.
Programs awarded the title of GCAA All-Academic must boast a cumulative team GPA of at least 3.0. This past academic year, the Jayhawk golfers combined for a 3.5 GPA, the second-highest amongst Kansas athletic teams, only behind the KU swimming & diving team’s GPA of 3.59. A total of 100 NCAA Division I teams earned the honor.
The GCAA was established in 1958 and is an organization for professional golf coaches around the country. This year, the GCAA recognized 187 schools with this honor, led by Georgia State’s overall team GPA of 3.85. Along with Kansas, the Big 12 was represented by Baylor, Iowa State and Oklahoma State.
