Six Rockets named to All-American Scholar Team

Toledo placed six Rockets on the 2017-18 National Golf Coaches Association All-American Scholar Team.

UT had a school record seven members on the scholar squad last year.

The six Rockets selected to the squad each possess a grade-point average of 3.6 or higher.

During the 2017-18 academic year, Toledo posted an athletic department best 3.776 GPA in the fall semester and ranked second with a 3.673 GPA in spring semester.

Tumfong paced the Rockets with a 3.904 GPA followed by Daengpiem (3.884), Kochendoerfer (3.879), Toburint (3.734), Kawil (3.675) and Kuvanun (3.610).
