The Luther College men's golf team was one of 28 NCAA III schools to earn Golf Coaches Association of America (GCAA) All-Academic Team Honors for the academic year 2012-13, presented by Farmers Insurance.
"Farmers Insurance is proud to honor and support the GCAA and their 2013 recipients of the 2013 Team Academic Awards," said Chuck Browning, head of sponsorship and corporate giving for Farmers Insurance. "A key philanthropic pillar of Farmers Insurance is education, thus this award is a perfect fit for us and gives us a chance to extend our support of golf throughout the year. It is also an extension of our University Day platform at the Farmers Insurance Open, which we continue to see great success on each year."
To be eligible for GCAA All-Academic Team honors, a college or university must submit the grade-point-average (GPA) for each player on its official roster list for the academic year and have accumulated a GPA of 3.0 or higher to be so honored.
The Norse are coached by Scott Fjelstul, who has been with the Norse for 26 seasons.
