Carson-Newman women’s golf’s Kelli Pemberton, Meridith Hawkins and Jessica Hart have all earned All-American Scholar honors from the Women’s Golf Coaches Association.

The criteria for selection to the All-American Scholar Team are some of the most stringent in all of college athletics. The minimum cumulative GPA is 3.50.

Hawkins earns a spot on the team for the second time in her career while Pemberton and Hart are both first-time honorees.

Hawkins was the 2014-15 SAC Scholar-Athlete of the Year and an Honorable Mention All-SAC regular season team member.
