CORAL SPRINGS, Fla. – The Women’s Golf Coaches Association (WGCA) All-American Scholars were announced recently with a trio of Southwestern Oklahoma State University Lady Bulldogs listed among a total of 1,011 women’s collegiate golfers recognized with this prestigious honor.
Earning the honor for the second consecutive season were senior Emily Folsom of Oklahoma City and junior Elin Wahlin of Karlshamn, Sweden. Joining the repeat duo was freshman Tracy McGill of Marietta.
The criteria for selection to the All-American Scholar Team are some of the most stringent in all of college athletics, including a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.50.
“I’m extremely proud of Emily, Elin and Tracy for this incredible accomplishment,” SWOSU Head Golf Coach Brad Fleetwood said. “Being named an All-American Scholar is the highest academic honor one can earn in the sport of golf and this award is a testament to their dedication both on and off the golf course.”
SWOSU has now had nine women’s golfers earn a selection to the WGCA All-American Scholar Team under the direction of Fleetwood, including three repeat winners. Others to claim the honor include Jessica Heard (2012-14), Ashlynn Hall (2014), Victoria Dobbie (2014) and Courtney Gourdin (2016).
