The Golf Coaches Association of Wisconsin (GCAW) is pleased to announce that several students from the Colfax/Elk Mound girls’ golf team are Academic All-State honorees for the recently concluded 2020 girls’ golf season.
The honorees and their designations from the Colfax/Elk Mound team are: Grace Shafer, honors; Emma Nechanicky, high honors; Olivia Clickner, high honors; and Ella Reese, high honors.
Students are nominated by GCAW member coaches if they meet the following criteria: 1) A cumulative grade point average of at least 3.25, 2) participation in at least 75% of their team’s varsity matches, and 3) are in grades 10-12.
Grace, Emma, Olivia, and Ella are student-athletes who serve as a great example to others, proving that academic and athletic successes are not mutually exclusive.
The coaches association is proud to announce that 330 girls from 81 high schools 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 3.842.
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. An academic ‘Team’ award honoring high school teams with the highest cumulative GPA will be announced in March, 2021.
