PULLMAN, Wash. -- - Washington State University freshman golfer Diana Hong has been selected to the National Golf Coaches Association All-America Scholar team for NCAA Div. I.
'Diana is an extremely talented golfer who has just begun to scratch the surface of the success she will achieve here at WSU both athletically and academically,' offered WSU head coach Walt Williams.
Hong, from Sacramento's University High, has a 3.69 cumulative grade point average. To be a member of the national team golfers must have a cumulative GPA of 3.50 or better and have competed in at least 50 percent of the team's regularly scheduled competitive rounds.
As a freshman, Hong had the second lowest scoring average for the Cougars, 77.4 strokes per round. She played in 12 events and 34 rounds for WSU during the fall and spring.
Hong tied for medalist honors at the Red Rocks Invitational in Arizona in early March, then tied for 21st at the Pacific-10 Conference Championships and tied for 19th at the NCAA West Regional. Her low round was a 66 during the third round of the UNLV Invitational in mid-March.
