GCAA Academic Teams
For the sixth straight year, Marquette has earned the Golf Coaches Association of America (GCAA) Team Academic Award, recognizing the team's cumulative 3.0 GPA.
MU has logged a team GPA of 3.0 or better in each year since 2011-12. Earlier in the spring, the program earned public recognition from the NCAA for posting a perfect Academic Progress Rate (APR) score of 1,000, which was a score in the top 10 percent of all Division I men's golf programs.
The honor is the latest for the 2017 BIG EAST Champions - the Golden Eagles claimed the title and a berth in the NCAA Men's Golf Championships for the third time overall, and second time in three years.
