YORK, PA – York College rising sophomore Jordan Koller earned a special academic honor as announced on Monday by the Women's Golf Coaches Association. Koller earned WGCA All-American Scholar honors after a stellar freshman year for the Green and White.

Koller, a sport management major, was spectacular in the classroom in her first year at York. Koller posted a perfect 4.0 GPA in the fall semester and then matched it with another 4.0 during the busy spring semester. Not only did she get a 4.0 in the spring but she took 17 credits in addition to doing a great job on the course.

Koller played in all 19 of the Spartan rounds for the year as she led the squad with a scoring average of 80.26 strokes per round. She posted a low round of 74 during day two of the Green Turtle Invitational. That 74 would help her win the tournament for her first career tournament championship in just her second collegiate event. Koller recorded five top five finishes and seven top ten finishes in her nine collegiate tournaments.

Koller finished third at the CAC championships as the team captured their first Capital Athletic Conference championship in just their second varsity season.

The criteria for selection to the All-American Scholar Team are some of the most stringent in all of college athletics. The minimum cumulative GPA is 3.50. Koller is one of three CAC golfers to get recognized by the organization.
