Four Arizona State women’s golfers were named All-American Scholars by the Women’s Golf Coaches Association (WGCA), the collegiate golf governing body announced today.
Juniors Daniela Ordonez and Justine Lee and sophomores Noemi Jimenez and Emilie Alonso each earned the prestigious academic distinction from the WGCA. A golfer must hold a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.50 to be considered for the honor. The Sun Devils are tied with Stanford and USC for the most players honored from a Pac-12 school.
The Arizona State women’s golf team is known for its high achieving academics with three-straight Edith Cummings Munson award winners for the highest GPA among first-team All-Americans and three of the last five Pac-12 Scholar Athletes of the Year. Ordonez, a three-time WGCA All-American scholar, held the highest GPA of any Pac-12 women’s golfer for the second-straight season.
The Sun Devils finished the season in fifth place at the NCAA Championships held at the University of Georgia Golf Course in Athens, Ga.
