DENTON, Texas- Junior Jacey Chun and freshman Chaslyn Chrismer helped North Texas to a record breaking year on the golf course this season and now they have been recognized for their work in the classroom. Chun and Chrismer were honored by the National Golf Coaches Association and named to the 2010-11 All-American Scholar Team.
"I am very proud of Jacey and Chaslyn.," said head coach Jeff Mitchell. "They both exemplify the term student-athlete and they put a great deal of effort into their academics and both were very successful on the golf course as well. This is a tremendous achievement and they both deserve it."
Chun was named to the 2011 All-Sun Belt team as she finished in the top-10 in four of her first five tournaments. She had a season-low round of 70 and finished in a tie for second place at the Baylor Invitational.
Chrismer had a sensational freshman year as she notched the lowest freshman stroke average in over 15 seasons. She also notched the second lowest round in school history last season with a 67 at the UNLV Spring Rebel Invitational. It was the lowest round of golf by a North Texas player since 1988-89.
The criteria for selection to the All-American Scholar Team are some of the most stringent of all college athletics. The minimum cumulative GPA is 3.50 and student-athletes must have competed in at least 50% (Division I) or 66% (Division II & III) of the college's regularly scheduled competitive rounds during the year.
