The Greensboro College men’s golf team earned prestigious recognition on Wednesday from the Golf Coaches Association of America (GCAA). The Pride were named NCAA Division III Academic National Champions, joining respective division winners Brown (Division I), Post (Division II), Embry Riddle (NAIA), Scottsdale Community College (NJCAA DI) and South Mountain Community College (NJCAA DII).

In addition to receiving top honors, Greensboro was one of 143 teams – a new high in the five year history of the award – to qualify for All-Academic Team status and was one of only three teams at the NCAA Division III level to garner President’s Special Recognition. To be eligible for All-Academic Team status, a team must carry a 3.0 GPA or higher, while President’s Special Recognition requires a 3.5 GPA or higher.

The Academic National Championship is the first in school history for any sport. The Pride men’s golf program has traditionally excelled on the course – with two National Championships in 2000 and 2011 – as well as in the classroom – with 15 All-America Scholars, including four in 2013.
