WASHINGTON - Three Georgetown University women's golfers were among a group of student-athletes selected by the Women's Golf Coaches Association (WGCA) as All-American Scholars.

Junior Mackenzie Boydston (Keller, Texas/Keller Memorial), recent graduate Stefanie Soelling (Everett, Wash./Everett) and sophomore Jenny Xiao (Foshan, China/Foshan No. 3 Middle School) were all recognized by the WGCA for their accomplishments in the classroom and on the course.

"I'm very proud of Jenny, Mackenzie and Stefanie for this great achievement," Head Coach Katie Brophy said. "They were great leaders of our team and have showed how important it is to work hard on the course and in the classroom. I'm very happy for Stefanie to have this honor for the second time and I know that Mackenize and Jenny will carry this through next year."

Boydston, a finance major, carries a 3.584 grade-point average. As a sophomore, she competed in 10 tournaments and played 25 rounds while carrying a team-best 77.48 stroke average. She posted three top-10 finishes, including a tie for second place at the BIG EAST Championship, finishing with a 13-over par 229 as the Hoyas finished in second place. Boydston was an All-BIG EAST selection after her finish at the league championship.

Soelling, a biology major, graduated with a 3.639 grade-point average. A team captain, this was the second-straight year she has been recognized as a WGCA All-American Scholar.

In just her freshman season, Xiao competed in all 10 tournaments for the Hoyas, posting a 79.40 stroke average in 25 rounds. Enrolled in the McDonough School of Business, Xiao has a 3.560 grade-point average. On the course, she posted two top-10 finishes and four among the top-30 overall. Her best finish was a 10th place showing at the BIG EAST Championship. Xiao was named the BIG EAST Freshman of the Year.

 

 

Georgetown posted seven top-10 finishes in 10 tournaments during the 2013-14 season, including five during the fall season. The Hoyas finished in second place at the BIG EAST Championship.

More than 600 collegiate women's golfers were selected in the three divisions (I, II and III). 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.
