Cal Lutheran junior Nate Gray reeled in Cleveland Golf/Srixon All-America Scholar honors last week for the first time of his career. Gray was one of 41 Division III golfers to be named to the list that also featured Division I, II and NAIA players.
The 2015-16 academic year was a memorable one for the Cal Lutheran athletics department. With 430 student-athletes occupying 460 roster spots, a number of milestones were met including the first NCAA Division III National title in school history, which was achieved by the women’s volleyball team, and an individual national champion crowned to round out the year.
Announced last week by the Golf Coaches Association of America (GCAA), Cal Lutheran junior Nick Dallas was named to the 2016 Division III PING All-America Third Team for his stellar play this season. He becomes the sixth golfer in CLU history to earn GCAA All-America honors and just the second to do so in the past decade.
Cal Lutheran golfer Nick Dallas was feeling pretty good when he walked into the team's 2015 yearend award banquet last spring following a strong first season of competing for the school. So he was a little shocked when he walked out of the banquet without any kind of award, not even a most improved trophy.
Throughout the school year, much of the day-to-day focus is directed towards the successes of the Cal Lutheran athletics programs, but on Saturday, May 7, a group of 150 student-athletes, with their families and friends, gathered inside of the Gilbert Arena for the 13th CLU Scholar-Athlete Society Induction ceremony where academics were praised.
Announced recently by the Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (SCIAC) office, the Cal Lutheran men’s golf team had three Kingsmen honored with a pair earning Second Team honors and one landing on the First Team.
The final day of the season came to a head today at the 2016 Men’s and Women’s SCIAC Golf Championships at the Oak Valley Golf Club where the men’s race came down to the wire in one of the closest finishes in conference history.
