Coors named to WGCA All-American Scholar squad

SAINT LEO, Fla. – Saint Leo University sophomore Marie Coors was named a Women's Golf Coaches Association (WGCA) All-American Scholar for 2014-15, when the WGCA unveiled its list of recipients of the association's top academic honor late Monday.

Coors, who earned a spot on the list for the second year in a row, was one of 758 women's collegiate golfers across all levels of collegiate athletics to be honored with WGCA All-American Scholar distinction.

The award is the most recent academic award for the economics major from Gross-Zimmern, Germany; she previously earned Capital One Second Team Academic All-America honors earlier this summer.

Coors completed her sophomore campaign with a 76.44 stroke average over 27 rounds, the second-lowest average on the team, despite playing much of the year with a wrist injury. She fired a low round of 71 three times during the season, the last time occurring in the 2015 NCAA Super Regional at the Savannah Quarters Country Club in Pooler, Ga. 

Coors was also named the Athlete of the Year and Rookie of the Year at Saint Leo's 2015 Green and Gold Awards, for her accomplishments during the spring 2014 season when she earned WGCA All-America honors and won the 2014 Sunshine State Conference Championship individual title and took first place at the 2014 NCAA Super Regional hosted by Saint Leo at the Lake Jovita Golf and Country Club.
