CORAL SPRINGS, Fla. - The East Carolina women's golf team was one of 25 teams recognized Thursday by the Women's Golf Coaches Association (WGCA) for having a collective GPA of 3.635, which ranked 25th nationally.

This is the third-time in school history that the Pirates garnered a Top-25 ranking following the 2007-08 (21st/3.531 GPA) and 2010-11 (18th/3.658 GPA) seasons.

"I'm real proud of what this team has accomplished both in the classroom and on the golf course," said head coach Kevin Williams. "To be recognized for the third time in the last seven years is a testament to the focus and determination that our team has on its academics."

The University of Texas-El Paso Women's Golf Team has been honored as the recipient of the 2013-2014 WGCA All-Scholar Team GPA Award. The award recognizes the women's collegiate golf program with the highest collective average team GPA, which includes all of the team's student-athletes for the 13-14 season. UTEP's six team members had an average GPA of 3.840.

Earlier this month senior Fanny Wolte, junior Katie Kirk and sophomore Nicoline Engstroem Skaug were named 2013-14 NCAA Division I All-America Scholars by the WGCA.

The WGCA, founded in 1983, is a non-profit organization representing women's collegiate golf coaches. The WGCA was formed to encourage the playing of college golf for women in correlation with a general objective of education and in accordance with the highest tradition of intercollegiate competition. Today, the WGCA represents over 500 coaches throughout the U.S. and is dedicated to educating, promoting and recognizing both its members and the student-athletes they represent.
