CORAL SPRINGS, Fla. – Four members of the Boise State women’s golf team – rising seniors Samantha Martin and Sammie Pless, and rising juniors Dana Clary and Genevieve Ling – were named All-American Scholars, the Women’s Golf Coaches Association announced recently.

To be named an All-American Scholar, golfers must maintain a minimum cumulative grade-point average of 3.50 and compete in at least 50 percent of the team’s competitions.

Boise State’s four All-American Scholars were the second most in the Mountain West, trailing only New Mexico (five).

"This is the most All-American Scholars we've had in a single season and I am proud of the accomplishments these girls had this year,” head coach Nicole Bird said. “Not only did they excel on the golf course, but they surpassed all expectations in the classroom. They work so hard and are very deserving of this honor."

For Pless, the honor is her third in three seasons, while Ling received the award for the second time in her two seasons at Boise State. Clary and Martin each received the accolade for the first time.

Earlier this year the Broncos received a second-straight Public Recognition Award from the NCAA for having a multi-year Academic Progress Rate (APR) score in the top-10 percent of women’s golf teams nationally.

The Boise State women’s golf team has recorded four-consecutive perfect single-year APR scores.
