Two Women's Golfers Named All-American Scholars
July 6, 2009
TUCSON, Ariz. - Two University of Arizona women's golfers were named to the 2009 National Golf Coaches Association All-America Scholar teams, the organization announced recently.
Nikki Koller and Margarita Ramos both were included on the Division I list. To be named an All-America Scholar, student-athletes must maintain a minimum 3.50 cumulative grade point average and participate in at least half of the team's competitive rounds played.
Koller, a 5-foot-7 native of Lewisburg, Ky., just completed her freshman campaign and ranked sixth on the UA squad with a 76.14 scoring average. She posted two top-20 finishes in 2008-09 with a low round of 69 and was the top-finishing Wildcat in two events. Koller's best finish was a tie for 12th place at the Pac-10 Championships, where she tallied a six-over 219 total.
Ramos, a 5-foot-4 native Mexico City, Mexico, recently completed her freshman season and ranked second on the team with a 75.47 scoring average. She collected one top-20 finish and a low round of 70. Ramos' best finish was a tie for 14th place at the Stanford Women's Intercollegiate with a two-over tall of 215.
Koller and Ramos, both pre-business majors, are the first Wildcats to be honored by the NGCA since 2006. A total of 25 Arizona players have earned All-America Scholar honors since 1985.
