Elon Men’s Golf Earns GCAA Team Academic Award

NORMAN, Okla. – For the fourth consecutive season, the Elon University men’s golf program was recognized by the Golf Coaches Association of America (GCAA) as one of 187 teams across all three NCAA divisions, NAIA and NJCAA Division I and II programs for excellence in academics during the 2016-17 academic year.

The Phoenix program compiled a 3.37 team GPA over the course of the 2016-17 season to earn GCAA All-Academic Team accolades.

Additionally, team member Charlie May was a CAA All-Academic Team selection and was the A.L. Hook Scholar-Athlete award winner for having the highest GPA of any male student-athlete at Elon thanks to his 3.87 GPA as a finance major.

To be eligible for GCAA All-Academic Team honors, a university must submit the GPAs for each player on its official squad list for the academic year.
