2017 Conference Carolinas Academic All-Conference

BRISTOL, Tenn. – Prior to the start of the Conference Carolinas Men's and Women's Golf Championship, the league announced their academic all-conference performers. The King University men's golf team had one player recognized while the women's team had two players earn the distinction.

On the women's side, both Nicola Robertson and Samantha Taylor earned honors. Robertson carries a GPA of 3.62 while Taylor is at 3.49. On the course, Robertson owns a stroke average of 79.19 with two top 10 finishes while Taylor has an average of 80.13, finishing in the top 10 once.

Mathias Bunaes was the only player on the men's side to earn recognition with his GPA of 3.31. On the course he has a stroke average of 78.50, playing in eight rounds for the Tornado. His low round of 68 came at the King University Invitational last fall.

To be selected academic all-conference, student-athletes have to maintain a cumulative GPA of 3.25 or higher on a 4.0 scale. The GPA is calculated based on the student-athlete's cumulative average through the previous semester. Academic All-Conference Teams are comprised of juniors and seniors who play in at least one of Conference Carolina's twenty sponsored sports, and who have attended their member institution for at least one academic year.
