Two former men’s golfers, Martin Liu and Andres Pumariega, are Cleveland Golf/Srixon All-America Scholars, two of just 146 NCAA Division I student-athletes to earn the award.
To be eligible, student-athletes must be a junior or senior academically, have competed at least three full years at the collegiate level, participate in at least 70 percent of their team’s competitive rounds, boast a stroke-average of 76.0 or lower and maintain a minimum cumulative grade-point average of 3.2.
Liu, who graduated this spring, served as a co-captain his senior season, posting a 76.0 stroke average through 32 rounds of competition. At the A-10 championship, Liu finished in 10th place overall, carding a two-round score of 1-under par 143.
Pumariega, slated to graduate this December, was the Colonials’ MVP for the second straight year last season. He posted a team-best 73.8 stroke average this season, while claiming a share of the Kiawah Classic championship, an A-10 performer of the week award, and finishing in second place at the A-10 championship with a two-round score of 5-under par 139.
