Five University of Idaho women’s golfers were honored as All-American Scholars by the National Golf Coaches Association.

Graduating seniors Kayla Mortellaro, who leaves as one of the most honored student-athletes in Vandal history, and Teo Poplawski are joined in earning the recognition along with sophomore Rachel Choi, and freshmen Mary Sweeney and Kaitlyn Oster.

“The five individuals honored are very deserving of this award,” coach Lisa Johnson said. “Each managed her time well and was dedicated to excelling both in the classroom and on the course.  It’s a pleasure to coach such well-rounded and successful student-athletes.”

The NGCA team has some of the most stringent criteria among scholar athlete teams. Each student-athlete must have a minimum 3.5 grade-point average.
