All-American Scholars Cap Strong Academic Year

July 10, 2014

CORAL SPRINGS, Fla. - Boise State women's golfers Genevieve Ling, Oceane Pelloille and Sammie Pless were named All-American Scholars by the Women's Golf Coaches Association (WGCA), the organization announced recently.

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

The Broncos' three selections were tied for the second-most in the Mountain West.

Boise State's women's golf team combined to record a 3.68 GPA for the 2014 spring semester, tying its own record for highest semester GPA of any Bronco team on record. The Broncos have the highest semester GPA amongst Bronco athletic programs in each of the last five semesters.

The Broncos' cumulative GPA of 3.68 is also the highest on record for a Boise State athletic program.

Ling recorded a perfect 4.0 GPA in her first year at Boise State, while Jenna Leurquin recorded a 4.0 GPA during each semester of the 2013-14 academic year. Dana Clary and Sammie Pless each posted 4.0 GPAs during the fall 2013 semester.

Earlier this year, the Broncos were honored with a Public Recognition Award by the NCAA for having a multi-year Academic Progress Rate score in the top-10 percent nationally. The team posted a perfect single-year score of 1,000 for the 2012-13 year.
