For the 12th consecutive season, the ETSU Men’s Golf team received Golf Coaches Association of America (GCAA) Team Academic honors. The committee announced the award winners last Thursday afternoon.
ETSU, which has received the award each year since the creation of the GCAA in 2009, earned President’s Special Recognition for posting a team grade point average over 3.50 during the 2019-20 season. Overall, the men’s golf team boasted a 3.71 GPA. ETSU was one of 57 Division I programs that earned President’s Special Recognition, in addition to being the only Southern Conference team to do so.
For the second consecutive year, the Bucs placed each individual on the SoCon Honor Roll as all seven student-athletes were named to the list on June 25. The Bucs were the GCAA Academic National Champion in 2009.
Austin Carter, Remi Chartier, Archie Davies, Samuel Espinosa, Shiso Go, Trevor Hulbert and former Science Hill standout Jack Rhea comprised last year’s squad. In addition to the GCAA honor, Carter, Go, Hulbert and Rhea were named Srixon/Cleveland Golf All-America Scholars earlier this summer.
To be eligible for GCAA zAll-Academic Team honors, a college or university must submit the GPAs for each player on its official squad list for the academic year.
