Vanderbilt women's golfer Rene Sobloewski was named to the National Golf Coaches Association (NGCA) All-Scholar team for the first time in her career, and her selection marks the seventh consecutive season the Commodores have had someone named to the exclusive team.
The NGCA's All-Scholar team is one of the more prestigious academic honor lists in collegiate sports - student athletes must have a cumulative GPA of 3.5 and participate in at least 50% of their team’s contests to be recognized.
“Rene was so close to making the team as a freshman and I’m really proud of her for her efforts," said Vanderbilt head coach Greg Allen. "The criteria for this award is one of the toughest to come by in college athletics and I know how hard she studied to make sure she achieved the standard."
Sobolewski played in 31 rounds in 2011-12 and finished with a 78.1 stroke average. Her low round of 73 came twice in 2011-12, with the first coming in the second round of the Cougar Classic and then later in the year in the first round of the PING/ASU Invitational.
