CORAL SPRINGS, Fla.-- Adrian College freshman Alexis Weston (Waterford, Mich./Waterford Kettering High School) has been named to the prestigious Women's Golf Coaches Association (WGCA) All-America Scholar team, one of seven First-year representatives from the Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association.
"Alexis works very hard at everything that she does and that is precisely what it takes to be named an All-American Scholar (by the WGCA)," Adrian head coach Ryan Williams said. "You have to be outstanding in the classroom and on the golf course. Lexi played in every event for us this past season and did so well in the classroom. It means a lot to a team to have someone that can do that, and I am looking forward to seeing how she leads by example and continues to grow as a playing in the future. I'd love to talk about Lexi being a four-year All-American Scholar in a few years."
A total of 1,097 women's collegiate golfers were recognized by the WGCA whose criteria for the all-America scholar team are some of the most stringent in all of college athletics, including a minimum cumulative grade-point average is 3.50.
An exercise science major, Weston's 3.96 overall GPA is one of the nation's highest among all NCAA Divisions on the WGCA listing. She had the second-best stroke average among Bulldog freshmen, posting her best finish of 20th place at the Steven Tyler Invitational on April 8 in Portage, Mich. Weston earns the program's seventh WGCA All-America Scholar citation--all produced during Williams' tenure.
