The Golf Coaches Association of America released national awards this week and several SCIAC men’s golfers were among them. Jonathan Shaw from CMS was named to the Srixon/Cleveland Golf All-American Scholars team.

A recipient must also be of high moral character and be in good standing at his college or university.
The Division III Ping All-Region Teams were also released and in the West Region the SCIAC had five golfers make the team: Nathaniel Gray (Cal Lutheran), Conor Rooney (Pomona-Pitzer), Shaw and Matt Shuman (CMS) and Alec Spencer from La Verne.
