PULLMAN, Wash. - Washington State All-American Anastasia Kostina was named to the National Golf Coaches Association Division I All-American Scholar Team, for the second consecutive year, announced by the organization, Monday.
Kostina was one of 101 Division-I women named to the team. The criteria for selection to the team are a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.50 and student-athletes must have competed in at least 50 percent of the school's regularly scheduled competitive rounds during the year.
The award capped off the decorated senior's three-year WSU career, which included 21 top-10 finishes. The Nakhabino, Russia native tore through the WSU record books during her Cougar career and currently holds the record for single round score (66), three round score (205), lowest single season scoring average (73.8), and is tied for most top-10 finishes in a year (9). Kostina was also a two-time NGCA All-American honorable mention and garnered All-Pac-10 honors all three years.
Dating back to Jenny Ballou's all-scholar team selection in 1999, WSU has had a representative on the team for eight consecutive years.
