Coral Springs, Fla. – The Eastern Washington University women's golf program saw four of its student-athletes earn All-American Scholar honors from the Women's Collegiate Golf Coaches Association, the organization announced Monday, July 6.
Senior Taylor Crandall and junior Maddie Dodge earned recognition for the second consecutive year while junior Brooklyn Kraakman and freshman Kimberlie Miyamoto were named to the list for the first time in their respective careers.
"This recognition says a lot about our program to have four of our student-athletes earn spots on the list," said head coach Brenda Howe. "It goes to show how determined our players are to not only succeed on the course but in the classroom, as well."
The criteria for selection to the All-American Scholar Team are some of the most stringent in all of college athletics. The minimum cumulative GPA is 3.50, and those recognized also must have appeared in 50 percent of their team's competitive rounds.
EWU and Weber State topped the Big Sky Conference with four selections apiece while North Dakota and Sacramento State saw three student-athletes earn recognition.
