Trio of CCU Golfers earn All-American Scholar honors

The National Golf Coaches Association (NGCA) named three Coastal Carolina women’s golfers, Brittany Henderson, Jessica Alexander and Courtney Boe, to the 2011-12 Division I All-American Scholar team as announced on Friday, July 6.

The honor is the third-consecutive for Henderson, the third three-time recipient in program history. Alexander and Boe are appearing on the list for the second time in their collegiate careers.

“I’m proud of these student-athletes for their latest accomplishments,” said Coastal Carolina women’s golf head coach Katie Quinney. “To be named as an All-American Scholar by the NGCA while competing year round shows that these players have high expectations both athletically and academically.”

In all, 585 student-athletes across Division I, II and III schools, were honored for their work in the classroom and on the course. The criteria for selection to the All-American Scholar Team are some of the most stringent in all of college athletics. The minimum cumulative GPA is 3.5.

Henderson (3.969 GPA, management) appeared in each of Coastal’s 10 events, posting a 75.77 scoring average, which ranks fifth all-time in the CCU annuals. The junior claimed individual medalist honors at the Big South Championship as she posted an all-time championship low 54 total of 214 (-2). Henderson, who tallied a pair of top five and four top-20 finishes, was selected as an at-large individual participant at the NCAA Central Regional where she tied for 68th.

Alexander (3.720 GPA, management) competed in each of the Chants’ 10 regular season events, finishing the season with a 76.50 stroke average. The junior posted two top 10-worthy performances, including a season-best sixth-place effort at the Big South Championship.

Boe (3.969 GBP, marketing) competed in five team events, posting a season scoring average of 82.71. The sophomore carded a season-low 54-hole score of 243 at the Golfweek Conference Challenge contested at the Red Sky Golf Club in Vail, Colo.

In addition to the required 3.5 minimum GPA, student-athletes must meet a number of requirements, including being of high moral character and in good standing at the college making the nomination, and the student-athlete must have played in 50 percent of the team’s regularly scheduled competitive rounds during the year nominated.

The NGCA, founded in 1983, is a non-profit organization representing women’s collegiate golf coaches. Today, the NGCA represents nearly 500 coaches throughout the U.S. and is dedicated to educating, promoting and recognizing both its members and the student-athletes they represent.
