Three Mountaineers Named WGCA All-American Scholars

 

CORAL SPRINGS, Fla. – Three App State women’s golf team members were named All-American Scholars by the Women’s Golf Coaches Association (WGCA) for the 2019-20 season.

Juniors Mogie Adamchik, Carrie Catherine Ganim and Sarah Hardin were all selected for this prestigious honor, including Adamchik for the second straight year. These three student-athletes helped carry the women’s golf team to a team GPA of 3.53 in the fall and 3.85 in the spring. The team also accomplished a perfect single-year APR score in the latest cycle and has earned the NCAA’s Public Recognition Award (for having an APR score in the top 10 percent of the country’s women’s golf programs) for seven straight years.


The trio of student-athletes helped the Mountaineers finish top five in the team standings at five tournaments in the season that was cut short due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

A total of 1,401 women’s collegiate golfers earned the honor this year. The criteria for selection to the All-American Scholar Team are some of the most stringent in all of college athletics. The minimum cumulative GPA to be considered for the honor is 3.50.

The Women’s Golf Coaches Association, founded in 1983, is a non-profit organization representing women’s collegiate golf coaches. The WGCA was formed to encourage the playing of college golf for women in correlation with a general objective of education and in accordance with the highest tradition of intercollegiate competition. Today, the WGCA represents over 650 coaches throughout the U.S. and is dedicated to educating, promoting and recognizing both its members and the student-athletes they represent.
