ASU, UALR ath­letes named to schol­ars list

Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - SCOREBOARD -

Five Univer­sity of Arkansas at Lit­tle Rock ath­letes and a school-record seven Arkansas State Univer­sity ath­letes were named All-Amer­i­can Schol­ars by the Women’s Golf Coaches As­so­ci­a­tion on Wed­nes­day, which tied ASU with Toledo, Yale and Lin­den­wood for the most selections in the na­tion.

Out of the WGCA’s 952 All-Amer­i­can schol­ars, ASU’s Ara­celly Jimenez Rios, Marisa Mar­quez, Sarah Childers, Emma Miller, Beth Ann Comp­ton, Grayson Glad­den and Maci Brooks, and UALR’s Sha­nia Berger, Emelie Blen­now, Sab­rina Bo­nanno, Lucy Owen and Pey­ton Weaver earned the honor. To be­come a scholar re­quires a min­i­mum 3.50 cu­mu­la­tive GPA and par­tic­i­pa­tion in at least 50 per­cent of the team’s tour­na­ments.

Arkansas State now has placed mul­ti­ple play­ers on the list seven con­sec­u­tive years.

Brooks, a se­nior last sea­son, be­came the sec­ond ASU women’s golfer to achieve the recog­ni­tion dur­ing all four years of her ca­reer, join­ing Anna Car­ling. Childers made her third con­sec­u­tive ap­pear­ance, while Miller, Comp­ton and Jimenez Rios ap­peared on the list for the sec­ond con­sec­u­tive year.

This is the third con­sec­u­tive year that UALR’s Bo­nanno has made the list. Blen­now is on the list for the sec­ond con­sec­u­tive year, and Weaver re­turns to the list af­ter mak­ing the cut in 2015.
