NORMAN, Okla —New Mexico (Division I), Newberry (Division II), Augsburg (Division III), SCAD - Atlanta (NAIA), Dodge City (NJCAA DI), and North Central Missouri (NJCAA DII) were all named Academic National Champions for finishing with the top GPA in their respective divisions, announced by the GCAA.

Newberry finished with the top overall GPA in all divisions, finishing the 2018-19 season with a 3.84 team GPA.

This is the first Academic National Champion Award for Newberry, while they are also the first Division II school to win the award since its inception.

A total of 202 schools submitted GPA’s of 3.0 or above, with 34 of those schools earning Presidents Special Recognition Honors, finishing with a team GPA of 3.5 and above.

“We are very pleased to have earned this award, and to be recognized by the GCAA as the Academic National Champion for men’s golf,” said Newberry Head Coach Howard Vroon. “Collegiate golf is incredibly time consuming for the student-athlete. This 2018-19 team worked extremely hard in the classroom and on the golf course, and this award will be very well received here on our campus,” Vroon continued. “Many thanks to the GCAA for organizing this award and for recognizing our student-athletes for their hard work and impressive achievement in the classroom.”

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