ORLANDO, Fla. (UCFKnights.com) – Senior Kaeli Jones and junior Anna Hack were named Women's Golf Coaches Association All-American Scholars on Tuesday afternoon. The duo were among 1,011 women's collegiate golfers recognized across the country.

It was the first time Joes and Hack made the list.
Jones earned a berth in the NCAA Women's Golf Regional Championship in 2018. She played in 11 events and posted a team-low scoring average of 73.8 strokes per round. The Sumterville, Fla., native recorded a trio of top-10 finishes, including a fifth-place finish at the American Athletic Conference Championship.
