Academic Honors Continue for Women's Golf

July 24, 2014

CORAL SPRINGS, Fla. - The Boise State women's golf team has been recognized for its performance in the classroom repeatedly throughout the 2013-14 season, and that trend continued Thursday. The Broncos ranked amongst the top 25 golf programs in the country in grade-point average this past season, earning recognition from the Women's Golf Coaches Association.

Boise State combined for a 3.665, ranking 17th-nationally.

Earlier this month the WGCA named a trio of Broncos All-American Scholars - freshmen Genevieve Ling and Oceane Pelloille and sophomore Sammie Pless. Each maintained a GPA of 3.50-or-higher and competed in at least 50 percent of the team's tournaments.

The Broncos' three selections were tied for the second-most in the Mountain West, and the Broncos' team GPA also ranked second in the league.

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.

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.
