Women's golf team earns top academic honors

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - The University of Arkansas women's golf team has been recognized as one of the top academic programs in the country by the Women's Golf Coaches Association.

The Razorbacks were among the top 25 teams in the country with the highest grade point average. Arkansas was No. 18 overall and was the highest-ranking Southeastern Conference program listed.

The Razorbacks finished the season with a 3.657 GPA.

The team award is one of several recent academic honors for the Razorbacks. This year, senior Emily Tubert and sophomore Gabriela Lopez were named to the WGCA All-Scholar team.

The duo helped the Razorbacks to a No. 9 final ranking after being ranked as high as a program-best No. 4 by last season.
