OSU, NSU each have duo named WGCA All-America Scholars

STILLWATER – Oklahoma State’s Chih-Min Chen and Michelle Forsland were named Women’s Golf Coaches Association All-American Scholars, which brought them to a combined seven career appearances on the prestigious WGCA list.

Chen, who earned her degree from OSU in sports management in May, became just the third Cowgirl to earn four career All-American Scholar awards, joining Pernilla Lindberg (2006-09) and Karin Kinnerud (2006-09). The Taipei, Taiwan native had eight top-10 finishes and a 74.68 stroke average during her time as a Cowgirl.

This is the third career WGCA All-American Scholar selection for Forsland, who also earned the award in 2017 and 2018 at Jacksonville University. Forsland saw 27 rounds of action with a pair of top-10 finishes as a Cowgirl in 2018-19, including an eighth place finish at the Big 12 Championship.

This marks the fourth straight year with multiple All-American Scholar selections for Cowgirl golf. Twenty-two different Cowgirls have now been selected for 47 All-American Scholar awards in the history of the program.

In the Big 12, 17 golfers made the All-Scholar team, and only Texas Tech (3) had more selections than Oklahoma State.

The WGCA recognized 1,097 women’s golfers across all levels of collegiate golf. The criteria for selection to the All-American Scholar Team are some of the most stringent in all of college athletics as the minimum cumulative GPA is 3.50.

Northeastern State women’s golf will go 19 straight years with a student-athlete earning WGCA All-American Scholar status with recent graduates Lexi Armon and Ebba Moberg named on Monday.

Armon is the program’s third four-time recipient of the honor joining Whitney McAteer (2010-13) and Baylee Price (2013-17).

Moberg earned her second straight WGCA academic award to give the RiverHawks’ women’s golf program its tenth consecutive season with multiple honorees.

Since 2001, there have been 39 WGCA All-American Scholars from Northeastern State.
