Vanderbilt women's golfer Megan Grehan was named to the National Golf Coaches Association (NGCA) All-Scholar team for the fourth consecutive year, becoming the first Commodore women's golfer to be named to the team in every year of her enrollment. Grehan graduated with a degree in Human and Organizational Development in May of 2011.
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 to be recognized.
"When Megan and I sat down her freshman year, we talked about how no one in our program had ever been named to the All-Scholar team more than twice," said Vanderbilt head coach Greg Allen. "She set a goal to do it all four years. It's very impressive to have her accomplish this goal, especially given the NGCA criteria and she did it at a place like Vanderbilt."
Grehan played in every tournament in her four-year Vanderbilt career and played in four NCAA Regionals and two NCAA Championships.
Grehan's name will live on in the program with the Megan Grehan Award, given to the player player with the highest academic exploits for the season. Allen began the honor this year at the team's end-of-the-year banquet.
