DAVIDSON, N.C. – For an impressive sixth consecutive season, the Davidson College golf team has received GCAA (Golf Coaches Association of America) Outstanding Team Academic Honors, as recently announced.

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, while accumulating at least a 3.0.

“I am very proud of our team and their commitment to academic excellence,” said head coach Tim Straub, who just completed his 20th season at the helm of the Wildcats. “They have all done an amazing job of balancing the academic rigors of Davidson College and the time demands of Division I golf.”

Davidson, which captured the 2021 Atlantic 10 Championship, its second in three trips, finished the abbreviated season with six Top-10 showings.
