Stewart earns NGCA All-Scholar Team award
The Nebraska women's golf team posted the fifth-highest team grade-point average of any squad in the nation to earn one of 25 NGCA All-Scholar Team honors from the National Golf Coaches Association on Monday.

Coach Robin Krapfl's Huskers, who advanced to NCAA Regional play for the second straight season on the course, posted a 3.705 cumulative team GPA during the year. South Alabama, Illinois Wesleyan, Carleton College and the University of Indianapolis were the only other institutions across all divisions to post team GPAs higher than Nebraska.

Husker junior Allison Stewart from Vermillion earned a spot on the NGCA All-America Scholar Team�after posting a perfect 4.0 GPA during the 2007 spring semester, while true freshmen Kate White (Waukegan, IL) and JC Stevenson (Grand Island, NE) added spots on the All-America Scholar Team.

It was Stewart's third consecutive scholastic All-America award from the NGCA, making her the 10th Husker in history to become a three-time NGCA Scholastic All-American.

With Stewart, White and Stevenson all earning spots on the team, it marked the fifth straight season that Nebraska has produced more than one NGCA Scholastic All-American.
