Halbig, Yocum named to NGCA All-American Scholar Team
July 1, 2009
Pia Halbig, who just finished her sophomore season at Cal, earned the honor for the first time. She was a second team Pac-10 All-Academic selection in Conference honors announced earlier this year.
Graduated senior Shannon Yocum, a first team Pac-10 All-Academic honoree, is the first California Golden Bear women's golf team member to be a four-time NGCA All-American Scholar. Three players (Eden Anderson 1997-99, Nicole Bolter 1998-2000 and Anne Walker 2000-02) have been three-time recipients of the honor, but Yocum is the first to earn the award four years.
