Campbell golfer honored for GPA

From News ReleasesJuly 4, 2014 

— Lisbeth Brooks of Campbell University has been named a WGCA All-American Scholar by the Women’s Golf Coaches Association.

A rising senior from Waunakee, Wis., Brooks owns a 3.64 cumulative grade-point average as an international business major.

To earn All-America Scholar honors, an individual must hold a cumulative GPA of 3.5 or higher and must participate in at least 50 percent of an institution’s rounds for the academic year.

A two-time Big South All-Academic team member, Brooks has earned Big South Presidential Honor Roll status in each of her three seasons at Campbell.

“I am so proud and happy for Lizi and her many accomplishments on the course and in the classroom,” Campbell coach John Crooks said. “She has received several honors here at Campbell University from the Big South Conference, and now the highest award in the nation, an All-American.”

On the course, she posted the fourth-lowest stroke average (74.41) among all Big South golfers in 2013-14 and finished No. 183 in the final Golfstat Cup national rating. She tied for 30th in the country with 96 birdies while playing all 97 rounds for Campbell, which won the Big South title for the second time in three years, advanced to the NCAA East Regional and finished 20th in the 2014 NCAA championship.

Brooks produced six top-10 finishes this season (tied for the team lead), including a fourth-place finish at the Fighting Camel Fall Classic, sixth-place showings at The Patriot Big South Preview and John Kirk Panther Intercollegiate and a seventh-place effort at the Big South Championship.

The 2012 Big South freshman of the year, Brooks was named to the Big South All-Conference team for the third straight year this past spring. Her collegiate low round of 67 at the UNCG Starmount Classic was the second-lowest among all Big South golfers in 2013-14.
