CORAL SPRINGS, Fla. – Rising sophomore Cassidy Conklin of the Drew University women's golf team has earned academic honors from the Women's Golf Coaches Association (WGCA).
Conklin was named as a WGCA All-American Scholar, an award given to women's collegiate golfers who achieved a cumulative grade-point average of 3.5 or higher.
During this past season, Conklin competed in all 17 rounds and averaged a 97.8. She shot three of her top-six rounds of the season at the NCAA Division III Championships, carding back-to-back 94s before closing out the year with a season-best 88. She also carded an 89 in the second round of the Ursinus College Revolutionary Classic and registered a 93 in two other rounds.
Conklin helped her team to a banner season in 2018-19, as the Rangers – in just their second year as a varsity program – won the Landmark Conference title by 41 strokes. For the season, Drew captured four team victories and averaged a 359.1 – an improvement of 15 strokes from the program's inaugural season.
