NORMAN, Okla. – (July 19) Seattle University's men's golf garnered President’s Special Recognition status as part of being honored by the Golf Coaches Association of America on Wednesday, as an All-Academic Team for 2016-17.

The Redhawks were among a total of 187 teams to submit GPAs of 3.00 or higher to earn All-Academic Team recognition, and just one of 39 teams received President’s Special Recognition status for having team GPAs of 3.5 or better.

To be eligible for GCAA All-Academic Team honors a college or university must submit the GPAs for each player on its official squad list for the academic year.

Seattle U had six golfers earn Western Athletic Conference All-Academic honors, while senior Ahren Young was one of four students in the 2016 graduating class at SU to earn the President's Award, given to the graduating senior who enters Seattle U as a first-time freshman and maintains the highest Seattle U GPA throughout their undergraduate degree.
