Six Ivy Golfers Earn Cleveland Golf/Srixon All-America Scholar Honors
NORMAN, Okla. -- The men's Division I Cleveland Golf/Srixon All-America Scholars for 2010-11 were announced by the Golf Coaches Association of America (GCAA) on July 20. A total of 138 players were named to the team, including six Ivy League student-athletes.
Rounding out the Ivy contingent on the All-American Scholar team are a pair of 2011 All-Ivy first team honorees in Penn's Scotty Williams and Yale's Tom McCarthy. Williams, a rising senior, tied for fourth en route to his third All-Ivy honor in as many seasons. McCarthy finished as the 2011 runner-up, leading the Bulldogs to the 2011 Ivy League Championship and a trip to NCAA Regionals. The recent graduate earned All-Ivy accolades in his final three seasons with the Bulldogs.
