(Seguin) - Texas Lutheran Women's Golf ranked 23rd in all of NCAA Division III for team grade point average, with a 3.442 GPA, and three Bulldogs – sophomores Summer Swift and Kaley Martin and freshman Kristen Cox – were named Women's Golf Coaches Association (WGCA) All-American Scholars.

The WGCA recognizes the women's collegiate golf programs with the highest collective average team GPAs. The University of Nebraska Omaha was the top NCAA Division I program. Lindenwood University and Ithaca College were named top DII and DIII programs, respectively.

A total of 1,011 WGCA All-American Scholars were announced over all divisions. The criteria for selection to the All-American Scholar Team are some of the most stringent in all of college athletics. The minimum cumulative GPA is 3.50.

Swift and Martin claimed the WGCA All-American Scholar honor for a second straight year. Cox received the WGCA honor in his first varsity season.

Swift, Martin and Cox were key members of the Bulldogs' team in 2017-18. The three players were regulars in the Bulldogs' starting five.

All three players previously were named to the 2018 SCAC Spring Academic Honor Roll.

Swift won the 2018 Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference Championship. She became the first Bulldog to win an individual golf title in the SCAC.

Swift defeated Southwestern University's Leilani McDaniel in a sudden-death playoff at the conference championship tournament at Panther Trail Golf Course in The Woodlands, Texas.

Cox was named the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference Women's Golf Freshman of the Year. She tied for 10th at the 2018 SCAC Women's Golf Championship and earned Second Team All-SCAC honors.

Martin finished 18th at the conference championships in her second year as a top-five player for TLU.

The WGCA, founded in 1983, is a non-profit organization representing women's collegiate golf coaches. The WGCA was formed to encourage the playing of college golf for women in correlation with a general objective of education and in accordance with the highest tradition of intercollegiate competition.

The WGCA represents over 600 coaches throughout the U.S. and is dedicated to educating, promoting and recognizing both its members and the student-athletes they represent.
