Coors Tops off Rookie Season with WGCA Academic All-America Selection

CORAL SPRINGS, Fla. – The Women's Golf Coaches Association (WGCA) All-American Scholars for Division I, II & III were announced, Wednesday. A total of 664 women's collegiate golfers recognized with the prestigious honor. Saint Leo women's golfer Marie Coors earned the award, just weeks after wrapping up a stellar rookie season.

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 3.50.

During her freshman year alone, Coors has excelled on the course, making her first trip to the NCAA Division II Championships where she tied for eighth. Her rise to national prominence came with eight top-10 finishes, as well as individuals honors for winning both the Sunshine State Conference Championships and NCAA South Region Championships.

A native of Gross-Zimmern, Germany, Coors was named a WGCA All-American as well as a WGCA All-South Region golfer. For the complete WGCA Academic All-America award list, click here.
