NORMAN, Okla. - Utah Valley University senior men's golfer Stratton Schulz was named a 2013 Cleveland Golf/Srixon All-America Scholar for NCAA Division I by the Golf Coaches Association of America. Schulz joins a list of just 152 other individuals from D-I schools.
The Vernal, Utah, native is coming off a 2012 season that saw him post a scoring average of 75.04 - the fourth highest mark on the Wolverine squad. He also recorded three top-30 finishes last season, including a season-best tie for 11th at the BSU Dash Thomas Memorial.
To be eligible for Cleveland Golf/Srixon All-America Scholar status an individual must be a junior or senior academically, compete in at least three full years at the collegiate level, participate in 50 percent of his team's competitive rounds or compete in the NCAA Championships, have a stroke-average under 76.0 in Division I, 78.0 in Division II, 77.0 in NAIA and 79.0 in Division III, and maintain a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.2. A recipient must also be of high moral character and be in good standing at his college or university.
This is the second academic honor of the summer for Schulz, who also saw his name listed on the 2013 America Sky Conference All-Academic team earlier this month. Schulz has also seen his share of success on the course during the offseason, advancing all the way to the Round of 32 in the match play portion of the Utah State Amateur Championship.
