SCIAC Hauls in Men's Golf Awards

SCIAC Hauls in Men's Golf Awards

The Golf Coaches Association of American (GCAA) annonuced their All-America awards as five SCIAC men's golf student-athletes earned honorable mention honors. 

Jon Shaw and Matt Shuman were both selected from CMS as this is the third time that Shaw has been selected as an All-American: 2016 (third team), 2015 (honorable mention). For Shuman, it is his first All-America award.

Alec Spencer from La Verne earned the honorable mention nod after averaging 73.67 strokes per round in the regular season and posted five top-5 finishes. Spencer selected to participate in the 2017 NCAA National Championships in Howey-in-the-Hills, Florida, on the strength of his resume. 

Conor Rooney from Pomona-Pitzer also earned honorable mention accolades after an impressive year for the Sagehens during his second collegiate season as he most recently finished tied for 37th in the NCAA Tournament. 

Nate Gray from Cal Lutheran was also named honorable mention as he shot an average of 74.39 during his 23 rounds of action this season and earned a share of the 2017 individual SCIAC title, marking the first Kingsmen golfer to earn that status.

Additionally, Shaw was honored as a Division III Srixon/Cleveland Golf All-America Scholar back in May. Shaw continued the tradition of All-America Scholars in the Stags' program. Only 44 players across the country made the list; only juniors and seniors who have lower than a 79.0 stroke average were eligible for the award. In addition, they must have a 3.2 GPA for their first 3 years of college and compete in 50 percent of the team's competitions.
