CORAL SPRINGS, Fla. – The Women's Golf Coaches Association (WGCA) announced its All-American Scholars on Wednesday, with a total of 952 women's collegiate golfers collecting the prestigious honor.
Four Roos – Abbey Campbell (Garden City, Kan.), Chandler Gallagher (Kansas City, Mo.), Cyrielle Kern (Cuvry, France) and Cynthia Diaz (Bucaramanga, Colombia) – were all recognized after posting a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.50 at the conclusion of the 2016-17 season.
“I am honored to have Abbey, Chandler, Cyrielle and Cynthia earn this distinction,” shared head coach Brianna Broderick. “Receiving an honor like this takes discipline, hard work and a commitment to excel, both academically and athletically. These young ladies, along with their teammates, are great representatives of UMKC and the women's golf program.”
Campbell, a three-time honoree, graduated in May with her bachelor's degree in Nursing. For the second-straight year, Gallagher and Diaz were given the recognition, while Kern was named an All-American Scholar for the first time in her career.
