NORMAN, Okla. – (July 26) Seattle University men's golfers Kyle Cornett, Joe Harvie, Ross Kukula and Patrick Sato were all named Srixon/Cleveland Golf All-America Scholars, announced by the Golf Coaches Association of America Wednesday.
The quartet were among a new record number of student-athletes earned All-America Scholar status including 260 in NCAA Division I. To be eligible for Srixon/Cleveland Golf All-America Scholar status an individual must be a junior or senior academically, compete in at least three full years at the collegiate level, participate in 50-percent of his team’s competitive rounds, have a stroke-average under 76.0 and maintain a minimum cumulative career grade-point average of 3.2. A recipient must also be of high moral character and be in good standing at his college or university.
Cornett, Harvie, Kukula and Sato were all instrumental in the Redhawks' success on the course this season, leading Seattle U to its first Western Athletic Conference Championship and the program's first NCAA berth since 1965. Cornett finished second overall at the WAC Championship. All four were also among six total Redhawks earning WAC All-Academic honors this past spring, and were instrumental in the team being named a GCAA All-Academic Team for 2016-17.
