NORMAN – Tate Williamson, a recent Northeastern State graduate, earned his second straight Cleveland Golf/Srixon All-America Scholar award by the Golf Coaches Association of America (GCAA) on Wednesday.
Williamson ended his senior campaign with a 72.97 stroke average in 29 rounds. In his 11 events this last season, Williamson had four top-10 finishes, was named All-MIAA, and All-Region by the GCAA.
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 50-percent of his team’s competitive rounds, have a stroke-average under 78.0 in Division II, and maintain a minimum cumulative career 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.
Williamson is the fifth NSU golfer to hold multiple GCAA All-American Scholar Honors joining Jeff Cox (2008-09), Brad Fleetwood (2003-04), Eric Moore (2003-04), and Brian Ward (2005-06).
Since 2013, Northeastern State has been honored 13 times.
