NORMAN, Okla. – Davidson’s Viral Garewal, Clayton Tribus and Ethan Hall have been named 2021-22 Srixon/Cleveland Golf All-America Scholars, as recently announced by the GCAA.

To be eligible for Srixon/Cleveland Golf All-America Scholar nomination, an individual must be a sophomore, junior or senior both academically and athletically in NCAA Division I, II, III, and NAIA, or receiving their Associate’s Degree and in their last year of athletic eligibility in the NJCAA.

“I’m extremely proud of Viraj, Clayton and Ethan for their commitment both in the classroom and on the golf course,” said three-time A-10 Coach of the Year Tim Straub. “This accomplishment is a testament to how well they balance the academic rigors of Davidson College and the challenges of Division I golf.”

In addition, they must participate in 50 percent of their team’s competitive rounds, have a stroke average under 76.0 in NCAA Division I, under 78.0 in NCAA Division II, under 79.0 in NCAA Division III, under 78.0 in NAIA, and under 77.0 in NJCAA, and maintain a minimum cumulative career 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.

Since 1997, 18 different Wildcats have received this prestigious honor, while 11 scholar-athletes under Straub’s leadership earned the distinction multiple times, including Garewal and Tribus, who are the program’s first three-time recipients.

Davidson, which captured the 2022 Atlantic 10 Championship, its third in four trips, finished 2021-22 campaign with two wins and five Top-5 showings.
