Lawson named GCAA Cleveland Golf/Srixon All-America ScholarJuly 25, 2012 LAWTON, Okla. -- Trey Lawson is continuing to make waves on the golf course but this time he is being honored for his work in the classroom after the Golf Coaches Association of America announced today that he earned Cleveland Golf/Srixon All-America Scholar status during the 2012-13 academic year.
Only 52 student-athletes in NCAA Division II where given this honor and Lawson is the only men's golfer to earn this award out of the Lone Star Conference.
"It's a great honor for him and Cameron University to earn this award," said head coach Jerry Hrnciar. "Coming from a background where both of Trey's parents are educators he knows the value of taking care of business in the classroom."
To be eligible for Cleveland Golf/Srixon All-America Scholar status an individual must be a junior or senior academically, compete in at least three full years at the collegiate level, participate in 70-percent of his team’s competitive rounds or compete in the NCAA Championships, have a stroke-average under 77.0 in Division II, 77.0, and maintain a minimum cumulative grade-point average of 3.2. A recipient must also be of high moral character and be in good standing at his college or university.
Lawson will be an incoming senior this season for the Aggies and qualified for last year’s NCAA Division II Championship tournament finishing 39th.
