ASU Golf: Four Women Named All-American Scholars

Arizona State University has announced that the Women’s Golf Coaches Association (WGCA), the collegiate golf governing body, named four ASU women golfers All-American Scholars.

Sun Devils Daniela Ordonez and Justine Lee (juniors) and Noemi Jimenez and Emilie Alonso (sophomores) individually earned the WGCA’s coveted academic distinction. The WGCA stipulates that a golfer must hold a minimum cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 3.50 to be considered for the honor. Arizona State is tied with Stanford and USC for the most players recognized from a Pac-12 school.

The ASU women’s golf team has consistently posted high academic marks over the years, with three-straight Edith Cummings Munson award winners for the highest GPA among first-team All-Americans from 2008-10 and three of the last five Pac-12 Scholar Athletes of the Year.

In May, the Pac-12 Conference announced that all five members of the ASU women’s golf team line-up had placed in the conference All-Academic Team. A three-time WGCA All-American scholar, and a native of Bogota, Columbia, Ordonez held the highest GPA of any Pac-12 women’s golfer for the second-straight season.

ASU wrapped up last season in fifth place at the NCAA Championships held at the University of Georgia Golf Course in Athens, Ga.
