BOISE, Idaho – Boise State University women’s golfers Lori Harper and Jenna Leurquin were named to the Division I All-America Scholar Team by the National Golf Coaches Association, the organization announced recently.

"I'm very proud of the hard work in the classroom by our whole team this year," head coach Nicole Bird said. "It is quite an honor for both Lori and Jenna to be repeating All-American Scholars. I am very pleased with their dedication to our team goals academically and the way they were able to lead this team as positive role-models."

Harper, a rising senior from Manhattan Beach, Calif., is majoring in political science and business and boasts a 3.69 grade-point average. She notched three top-25 finishes this past season, a career best.

Leurquin, a rising junior from Waterloo, Belgium, is majoring in international business and boasts a GPA of 3.84. She posted a career-best three top-25 finishes in 2011-12, and her scoring average (77.5) was the 10th-lowest in school history.

To be eligible for selection to the All-America Scholar Team, an individual must carry a minimum 3.50 GPA and compete in at least 50 percent of the team’s regularly-scheduled competitive rounds.

Harper and Leurquin were each also honored with the 2011-12 Mountain West Scholar-Athlete Award, and each also earned 2012 Academic All-Conference honors during the spring semester.

The women’s golf team set the department record this spring for the highest single-semester GPA, combining for a 3.68.
