MSU Golf Duo Named All-American Scholars
July 13, 2012
Missouri State's Kelsey Welber and Emma Clegg have been honored nationally for the second consecutive season for their achievements in the classroom. Both have been named Division I All-American Scholars by the National Golf Coaches Association.
Welber, from Plano, Texas, is a three-time selection who graduated in May with a 3.75 GPA while majoring in Marketing. She was a two-time Missouri Valley Conference Scholar-Athlete in the classroom and a three-time all-conference performer on the course.
Clegg has a 3.84 cumulative mark and is majoring in Geography. A senior-to-be from Blackburn, Lancashire, England, Clegg also was voted to the Valley Scholar-Athlete Team this past season and ranked 13th in the league in scoring average.
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.
