Katie Detlefsen Named to NGCA All-American Scholar Team

July 1, 2009

ORLANDO, Fla. - UCF sophomore Katie Detlefsen (Eagan, Minn.) was named on Tuesday to the National Golf Coaches Association's All-American Scholar Team. One of the more stringent lists of any similar award in college sports, recipients must maintain at least a 3.5 cumulative grade point average and play in at least half of their team's tournaments. She also was named to the squad last year as a freshman.

Detlefsen is no stranger to earning academic accolades. She carries a perfect 4.0 grade point average and will earn her bachelor's degree this summer after just two years in college. She was selected for the Conference USA Women's Golf All-Academic team in 2009 after she combined her lofty GPA with a solid year on the links. She placed second for UCF at the NCAA East Regional and had a trio of third place finishes amongst her teammates in eight tournaments played. She tied for 18th overall to help UCF to a school-record second place finish at the C-USA Championship.
