AUBURN, Ala. - Auburn sophomore Alex Harrell has been named a Women's Golf Coaches Association All-American Scholar, the organization announced Wednesday.
The WGCA recognized 664 women's golfers across NCAA Divisions I, II, and III with All-American Scholar honors. To be selected as a WGCA All-American Scholar, a cumulative grade-point average of 3.5 is required to make the team.
Harrell, a nursing major from Phenix City, Ala., finished second on the team with a 74.86 stroke average and was the co-medalist at the 36-hole Lady Bulldog Individual Tournament in February. The sophomore also tied for seventh at the AllState Sugar Bowl Intercollegiate in New Orleans.
Harrell recorded three top-15 finishes and five top-30 finishes during the 2013-14 season, helping the Tigers to the NCAA East Regional in Tallahassee, Fla.
With her selection as a WGCA All-America Scholar, Harrell becomes the seventh different Tiger to earn the prestigious honor. Auburn has had at least one player selected to the WGCA All-American Scholar team since 2008.
