July 28, 2016

NORMAN, OKLA. – The Seton Hall men’s golf team was named an All-Academic Team by the Golf Coaches Association of America (GCAA), and furthermore, received the President’s Special Recognition.

For the second straight season, Embry-Riddle Prescott posted the highest overall team GPA for all divisions with a 3.787. A record 208 teams submitted GPAs of 3.00 or higher to earn All-Academic Team recognition.

A total of 41 teams received President’s Special Recognition status for having team GPAs of 3.5 or better. The 41 teams to earn this distinction are the most since the Academic Team Awards program began in 2009. Seton Hall is one of only 24 Division I programs to receive the prestigious presidential distinction.

To be eligible for GCAA All-Academic Team honors a college or university must submit the GPAs for each player on its official squad list for the academic year.

The Pirates will return to the links when the fall season opens on September 10 for the first two of three rounds at the Gimmler Invitational, hosted by St. John’s University in Farmingdale, N.Y.
