RENO, Nev. - Two members of the University of Nevada women's golf team, Carly Simpson and Bethany Wurster, earned Women's Golf Coaches Association All-American Scholar honors for the 2012-13 academic year on Monday.
To be recognized as an all-American by the WGCA, a student-athlete must have kept a minimum GPA of 3.50 or higher for the previous academic year. A total of 644 women's collegiate golfers were recognized by the WGCA for their work in the classroom, encompassing Divisions I, II and III.
For the 2012-13 academic year, Simpson posted a 3.50 grade-point average. Wurster had a 3.76 mark.
Simpson will be a sophomore this Fall and is a business major, while Wurster will be a junior and is an Anthropology major. Simpson competed in all nine of Nevada's events last season, with Wurster taking the course for the Wolf Pack eight times.
Wurster tied for fourth at the BYU Entrada Classic in March, carding a final-round 72 to help the Pack take third overall in the event.
