WGCA All-American Scholar Team

BRISTOL, Tenn. – Earlier this month, the Women's Golf Coaches Association (WGCA) announced their All-American Scholars for the 2013-14 season, and two King University student-athletes were honored. Elizabeth Swallow and Anna Walker both earned the distinction for the second consecutive year.

Swallow became King's first women's golfer to qualify for the NCAA Southeast Regional after placing in the top-10 in all nine tournaments. The Berkshire, England native won four times, including the Conference Carolinas Individual Championship, and earned six top-5 finishes. She capped the year with a 24th place finish at the NCAA Southeast Regional. The sophomore carries a 3.98 GPA while majoring in Mathematics.

Walker, a native of Marion, Virginia, earned her lone top-10 finish at the Conference Carolinas Championships where she carded a two round total of 157 to take seventh. She finished second on the team, behind Swallow with a scoring average of 83.89 strokes per round. The junior carries a 3.60 GPA while majoring in Business.

The WCGA announced their All-American Scholars for NCAA Division I, II & III earlier this month, and a total of 664 women's collegiate golfers were recognized with this prestigious honor. 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 is 3.50.
