Golfers named All-American Scholars
Submitted By Steve Connolly
Cal State East Bay Juniors Sienna Starck and Taylor Wyss have captured 2016-17 Women's Golf Coaches Association (WGCA) All-American Scholar honors.
The duo is among the 952 collegiate women's golfers throughout the country to earn this prestigious honor. The criteria for selection to the WGCA All-American Scholar Team are among the most stringent in all of college athletics, requiring at least a 3.50 cumulative grade point average.
This marks the third straight year the Pioneers have had an All-American Scholar award winner. It's also the second career award for Wyss, who was the lone CSUEB golfer to claim the honor during the 2015-16 academic year.
In addition to pacing the squad in the classroom, Starck and Wyss have helped lead the Pioneers on the golf course, and were two of the three East Bay golfers to compete in all 10 tournaments this season. Wyss posted the second-lowest scoring average on the team at 80.49, a career best to go along with three top-20 individual finishes. Starck also had her best season as a Pioneer, improving her scoring average from the previous year by more than three strokes to finish at 84.74.
