Srixon/Cleveland Golf All-America Scholars for NCAA Divisions II have been announced by the GCAA and three Lee players earned the prestigious honor. Senior Evan Spence, junior Dustin DeMersseman, and sophomore Beck Burnette all garnered the award which highlights players who excel both in the classroom and on the course.
All three players were instrumental in guiding the Flames to the program's first South Region Championship and appearance in the NCAA National Championship. All three players landed on the All-GSC Team and GSC Honor Roll while Spence and Burnette were named to the GSC All-Academic Team.
Burnette was also named an All-American for the second straight season.
To be eligible for Srixon/Cleveland Golf All-America Scholar status an individual must be a sophomore, junior or senior both academically and athletically in NCAA II. In addition, they must participate in 40-percent of his team's competitive rounds, have a stroke-average under 78.0, and maintain a minimum cumulative career grade-point average of 3.2. A recipient must also be of high moral character and be in good standing at his college or university.
"Evan, Dustin, and Beck represent our program at a high level on and off the course, and this is further recognition of that. What I find so impressive about this award is that it's a combination of playing accomplishments and academic performance. It takes a great deal of commitment as a student-athlete to receive this accolade, we're very proud of these young men for their accomplishment," said Lee Director of Golf, John Maupin.
