PROVIDENCE, R.I. – While it was a successful fall season on the course, the student-athletes in the Northeast Women's Golf Conference (NWGC) are equally as talented in the classroom. Tuesday the league announced its inaugural NWGC Academic All-Conference Team.
To be eligible, student-athletes must have completed one full calendar year at their current institution and have reached sophomore athletic eligibility. In addition, they must have at least a 3.30 cumulative grade point average (on a 4.0 scale) at their current institution.
A total of 24 student-athletes from all 11 institutions were honored. Keuka College had the most recipients with five. Alexis Anastos (Johnson & Wales), Nicole Krause (Manhattanville) and Katie Goulet (Husson) had the distinction of earning all-conference honors both on the course and in the classroom.
Husson women's golf landed three players on the first NWGC Academic All-Conference Team, including, junior Katie Goulet who is studying Nursing, senior Taylor Burbo who is pursuing a degree in Criminal Justice, and sophomore Veronica Diaz who is also working towards a Criminal Justice degree.
