Weiss Named Srixon/Cleveland Golf All-American Scholar

July 26, 2017

NORMAN, Okla. – Marshall men’s golf rising senior Alex Weiss (Pickerington, Ohio) was named a Srixon/Cleveland Golf All-American Scholar by the Golf Coaches of America, the organization announced Wednesday.

Weiss is the first Herd golfer to earn the honor since Brian Anania and Jeremy Rogers did so in 2014.

The Pickerington, Ohio native is coming off a season where he had a 73.49 stroke average and was Marshall’s top finisher in five tournaments, while he had two top-15 finishes and four top-20 finishes. Academically, Weiss was named to the Conference USA All-Academic Team with a GPA of 3.64 in the spring. Most recently the rising senior earned runner-up honors at the Ohio Amateur.

A new record number of student-athletes earned All-America Scholar status including 260 in Division I, 108 in Division II and 20 in NAIA. Additionally, 46 honorees were added to the previously released Division III Srixon/Cleveland All-America Scholars.

To be eligible for Srixon/Cleveland Golf All-America Scholar status an individual must be a junior or senior academically, compete in at least three full years at the collegiate level, participate in 50-percent of his team’s competitive rounds, have a stroke-average under 76.0 in Division I, 78.0 in Division II, 78.0 in NAIA and 79.0 in Division III, and maintain a minimum cumulative career grade-point average of 3.2. A recipient must also be of high moral character and be in good standing at his college or university.
