The Golf Coaches Association of Wisconsin (GCAW) has announced that Delavan-Darien High School golfers Alex Grover, sophomore; Landon Schramski, junior; and Joey Scherer, senior; are Academic All-State honorees for the boys’ golf season that just concluded.
Students are nominated by GCAW member coaches if they meet the following criteria:
- A cumulative grade point average of at least 3.25,
- participation in at least 75% of their team’s varsity matches, and
- are at least a sophomore in high school.
All three are student-athletes who serve as a great example to others, proving that academic and athletic successes are not mutually exclusive.
The coaches association believes it is noteworthy that a record 300 male golfers from around the state have been honored this year for maintaining high academic standards in the classroom while competing in varsity golf. In fact, the average cumulative GPA of this year’s honorees is an exceptional 3.720.
The GCAW was formed by high school golf coaches in 1986 to help build Wisconsin’s reputation for developing quality junior players by promoting golf in our schools and communities. Besides honoring both boys and girls who succeed as student athletes, the association also selects an annual All-State team for boys and girls based on their playing ability.
Congratulations, Alex, Landon and Joey on your success on the course and in the classroom!
