MADISON, Wis. -- Lindsay Danielson, a sophomore from Osceola, Wis., was named a member of the National Golf Coaches All-American Scholar team for a second-straight year.
The criteria for selection to the All-American Scholar Team are some of the most stringent in all of college athletics. The minimum cumulative GPA is 3.50 and Division I student-athletes must have competed in at least 50 percent of the school’s regularly scheduled competitive rounds during the year.
Danielson led the Badgers in scoring this past season competing in all 33 rounds and averaging 75.21 strokes per round. Her best finish came at the 2011 Lady Buckeye tournament where she finished second on the tough OSU Scarlet Course with a 72-78-77-227. She established season and career highs of 68 for 18 holes, 144 for 36 holes, and 218 for 54-holes.
She becomes the 14th Badger in school history to be named an NGCA All-American Scholar and the sixth to receive the honor in multiple years. The finance major was named Academic All-Big Ten this year, and she is the Athletic Board Scholar for women’s golf indicating she is a letterwinner with the highest grade point average on the team.
