CORAL SPRINGS, FLORIDA (July 23, 2015) The HBU women's golf team finished tied for eighth in the country for the 2014-15 season with a 3.731 combined GPA, the Women's Golf Coaches Association (WGCA) announced on Thursday afternoon.

The Huskies shared the classroom mark with East Tennessee State, while New Mexico posted the top GPA of 3.799 and was the recipient of the WGCA All-Scholar Team Award.

"We are extremely excited about ladies' top-eight finish for the WGCA All-Scholar GPA Award, separated from the top by just 0.068 of a point," head coach David Shuster said. "It's something that they have been working for over the last few years, after just missing out the last couple seasons. It takes a lot of commitment of their personal time, from them all, to accomplish this, especially considering how many hours they also put into their golf practice. We are very proud of them all."

Four HBU golfers; seniors Rachel Mulkey and Caitlyn Cassity, junior Brook Johnston and sophomore Charlotte Hartshorn; were named WGCA All-American Scholars on July 6.

The Women's Golf Coaches Association, founded in 1983, is a non-profit organization representing women's collegiate golf coaches. The WGCA was formed to encourage the playing of college golf for women in correlation with a general objective of education and in accordance with the highest tradition of intercollegiate competition. Today, the WGCA represents over 500 coaches throughout the U.S. and is dedicated to educating, promoting and recognizing both its members and the student-athletes they represent.
