The 16th ranked NC Wesleyan Men's Golf team had four golfers from the 2019 team named as Srixon/Cleveland Golf All-America Scholars for Division III that were announced by the Golf Coaches Association of America on Wednesday.
Senior all-conference members Grady Anderson and Mariano Silvestri, as well as juniors Luke Thornton and Dustin Wood were named to the All-America Scholar team.
NC Wesleyan was one of six USA South schools to have an All-America Scholar in 2019, but led all teams with four scholars. The Bishop men are coming off a season where they finished third in the conference and earned a berth to the national tournament with their impressive #16 ranking. They then went on to make the championship cut in the National Tournament and finish in the top 14 in the nation.
To be eligible for Srixon/Cleveland Golf All-America Scholar status an individual must be a junior or senior academically and compete in at least two full years at the collegiate level, participate in 50-percent of his team's competitive rounds or compete in the NCAA Championships, have a stroke average under 79.0 in Division III and maintain a minimum cumulative 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.
