WASHINGTON - Two Georgetown University women's golfers were among a group of student-athletes selected to the National Golf Coaches Association (NGCA) All-American Scholar Teams for Divisions I, II and III.
More than 600 collegiate women's golfers were selected in the three divisions. The criteria for selection to the All-American Scholar Team are some of the most stringent in college athletics, with a minimum cumulative grade-point average of 3.50.
Georgetown's Audrey Dalton (Portland, Ore./St. Mary), a 2013 Hoya graduate, and rising senior Stefanie Soelling (Everett, Wash./Everett) were both selected to the NGCA All-American Scholar Team. It was the second-straight year that Dalton had been recognized with the honor.
Eight BIG EAST schools had student-athletes selected to the team, while seven schools had multiple recipients.
"I'm very proud of Audrey and Stefanie for this terrific honor," Head Coach Katie Brophy said. "Audrey has been a big part of our team since I arrived here and it's a tremendous accomplishment to earn this recognition two years in a row. I've also really been impressed with how Stefanie manages to balance her pre-med major with golf. I look forward to her setting that example for her teammates next season as she steps into the role of team captain."
Dalton, who is currently touring Asia as part of the NCAA All-Star Tour, posted an 81.36 stroke average this past season. She finished in 23rd place at the Lehigh Invitational and tied for 37th place at the BIG EAST Championship, carding a 16-over par 238. Dalton interned last summer at Nike, selected as part of a group of Division I student-athletes who worked at their headquarters; Dalton worked specifically in the U.S. Kids Merchandising Department.
Soelling posted an 83.87 stroke average last season.
Georgetown posted four top-10 finishes during the 2012-13 season.
