WIU Golf Shines on the Course and in the Classroom

In the Women’s Golf Coaches Association All-American Scholars list released Monday, July 8, Western Illinois showed up not once, twice, but four times. Nicole Hamilton-Cross, Cassidy Jurkaites, Katie McTaggart and Mariah Peters were the names representing the Leathernecks, with Hamilton-Cross and Jurkaites becoming 3-time choices, and McTaggart and Peters becoming 2-time picks.


The minimum requirements to make the list is a 3.5 GPA, and the GPAs of the four Leathernecks ranged from 3.7 to 3.9. The four women are skilled golfers as well, with Jurkaites maintaining a team-best 81.36 per-18 hole stroke average.
