July 2, 2008
CORAL SPRINGS, Fla. - Vanderbilt women's golfers Julie Bartholomew and Megan Grehan were named to the National Golf Coaches Association's (NGCA) All-American Scholar Team in an announcement made Wednesday by the NGCA.
Bartholomew, a senior from Marietta, Ga., who graduated with a degree in Civil Engineering in May of 2008, and Grehan, a freshman from Mamaroneck, N.Y., were named to the prestigious list that consists of 402 women's collegiate golfers in Division I, II & III that had a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.50 and competed in at least 50% (66% for Division II & III) of the regularly scheduled competitive rounds during the year.
It is the first award for both Bartholomew and Grehan.
"We're really proud of Julie and Megan for earning this award," said Vanderbilt head coach Greg Allen. "The criteria is some of the toughest of any NCAA sport and to pull it off at a place like Vanderbilt University is very impressive. It not only shows their hard work and dedication academically, but it also reflects the support all student athletes receive from Elizabeth Wright and her staff in the academic center."
