TOLEDO, OH - University of Toledo golfers Kate Hoops (Lima, OH) and Allison Schultz (Cincinnati, OH) have each been named to the 2011-12 National Golf Coaches Association All-American Scholar Team. The criteria for selection to the All-American Scholar Team are some of the most stringent of all college athletics. The minimum cumulative GPA is 3.50 and student-athletes must have competed in at least 50% (Division I) or 66% (Division II & III) of the college's regularly scheduled competitive rounds during the year.
"I'm really happy for both Allison and Kate," Toledo Head Coach Nicole Hollingsworth said. "This is a great honor and a very prestigious one. They both were outstanding this past year in the classroom and on the golf course."
Hoops, who possesses a 3.85 grade-point average in early childhood education, ranked third on the team with a career-best 79.1 stroke average. Hoop's top finish of the season came when she tied for for seventh place at the EKU Colonel Classic. She received the team's Most Improved Award, Academic Award and Community Service Award.
Schultz, who become the first Rocket to win the Ohio Women's Amateur in late June, will be a senior in 2012-13 and holds a 3.74 GPA in exercise science. She ranked fourth on the team with a career-low 80.4 stroke average and notched a career-best 10th-place finish (76-80-79=235) at the 2012 Mid-American Conference Championship. Schultz received the team's Putting Average, Strength and Community Service awards.
