Ansett named GCAA All-America Scholar

NORMAN, Okla. – The Golf Coaches Association of America (GCAA) released its 2017-18 Srixon/Cleveland Golf All-America Scholars Wednesday, with Lipscomb senior Eric Ansett earning inclusion for the second straight season.
The academic honor comes on the heel of Ansett also being selected as the ASUN Men’s Golf Scholar Athlete of the Year for a second consecutive campaign.

The Spokane, Washington native posted a 3.89 GPA for 2017-18 and graduated with a degree in Journalism and New Media.

Ansett recently closed the book on his collegiate career with the Bisons after posting a 72.9 stroke average over 34 rounds of play this season, which ranked second on the squad. He posted seven top-20 and a pair of top-5 finishes, including a 3rd-place showing at the ASUN Championship with a -2, 140 (68-72).

A record 265 student-athletes received the honor in Division I. To be eligible for Srixon/Cleveland Golf All-America Scholar status an individual must be a junior or senior academically, compete in at least three full years at the collegiate level, participate in 50-percent of his team’s competitive rounds, have a stroke-average under 76.0 and maintain a minimum cumulative career grade-point average of 3.2. A recipient must also be of high moral character and be in good standing at his college or university.

Ansett owns two of the four Srixon/Cleveland Golf All-America Scholars in program history.
