Clegg Picks Up Another Academic Honor
July 12, 2013
Missouri State's Emma Clegg has been honored nationally for the third consecutive year for her achievements in the classroom by being named a Division I All-American Scholar by the Women's Golf Coaches Association.
Clegg, who graduated in May, compiled a 3.85 cumulative grade-point average while majoring in Geography. A native of Blackburn, Lancashire, England, she also was voted to the Missouri Valley Conference Scholar-Athlete Team twice, earned all-conference honors on the course last season and ranked third in the league. She previously was an All-American Scholar in 2011 and 2012.
The criteria for selection to the All-American Scholar Team is the most stringent in college athletics with members being required to carry a minimum 3.50 cumulative GPA and to have competed in at least 50 percent of the team's tournaments.
