The Golf Coaches Association of America announced Wednesday (July 30) that the Dalton State men’s golf team is All-Academic for 2014.
The eight NAIA teams receiving the honor all had a 3.0 or better Grade Point Average.
“This is a great indication of what these guys achieved over the first year,” Roadrunner Director of Golf Ben rickett said Wednesday. “They did a very good job of balancing academics with the athletic aspects of college. We have expectations as a program and being a complete Student-Athlete is one of them.”
To be eligible for GCAA All-Academic honors a college or university must submit the GPAs of each player on its official squad list for the academic year.
“It’s a good way to finish last year but it’s time to start focusing on the 2014-15 season,” added Rickett.
Sean Elliott, Max Bruck, Anthony D’Angelo, Levi Nix, Chase Jones, Toby Ebner, and Tyler Mitchell started the Roadrunner golf program with high honors on and off the court. All but Mitchell will return. The honor graduate was named to individual All-Academic honors.
