Pair of Pointers Make Women's Golf All-American Scholar Team


CORAL SPRINGS, FL (Press Release) – UW-Stevens Point golfers Danelle Olson (Detroit Lakes, Minn.) and Mary Welch (Madison/West) have been selected to the National Golf Coaches Association All-American Scholar Team for their efforts in the classroom during the 2010-11 season.

A total of 566 women's collegiate golfers across all three divisions of NCAA golf were recognized with the honor. The criteria for selection to the All-American Scholar team are some of the most stringent in all of college athletics, with honorees needing a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.50.

Olson and Welch each competed in all 20 rounds of the Pointers' 2010-11 campaign. Olson won the UW-Oshkosh Invitational and Welch took home the UW-Platteville Fall Invite championship. At the 2010 WIAC Championship, Olson fired a team-best 243 and finished tied for second place. Welch finished tied for 10th place, pacing the Pointers to a runner-up finish at the league championship.

Fellow WIAC golfer Alexa Campanile of UW-Whitewater also appears on the team.
