A trio of golfers from the Weber State men's golf program received national honors recently as the Golf Coaches Association of America released its Srixon/Cleveland Golf All-America Scholar list. Earning the honor for the Wildcats were 2017-18 seniors Kyler Dearden, Alex Herzog and Lee Shepherd.
"We are very proud of the efforts that the athletes in our program put forth in the classroom in addition to on the course," said WSU Director of Golf Scott Erling. "This award shows the dedication these three put forth to both their sport and studies, and it is a great honor for all three of them."
