University of Louisville women’s golfers Shannon Gramley, Lauren Hartlage, Louise Oxner, Delaney Shah, and Molly Skapik were named Women’s Golf Coaches Association All-American Scholars, the organization announced Wednesday.
A total of 952 women’s collegiate golfers from Divisions I, II, and III earned the prestigious honor for maintaining at least a 3.50 cumulative grade-point average.
The Cardinals’ five selections are the most in the Atlantic Coast Conference and ties a program high that was matched three times previously (2004, 2012, and 2013).
Louisville has placed at least three on the list each year since head coach Courtney Trimble took the reins of the program in 2012, and her athletes have been recognized a stellar 21 times in that span. In total, 25 student-athletes – 11 under Trimble – achieved All-American Scholar status since the inception of the program in 2000.
Oxner, a four-time WGCA All-American Scholar, graduated with a 3.735 cumulative grade point average and a bachelor’s degree in business. She made the Dean’s List during the academic year and was recognized on the athletic director’s honor roll and as a Red & Black Scholar. On the course, the Greenville, S.C., finished her career with a 76.24 average.
Skapik, a two-time honoree, is carrying a 3.664 grade-point average into her senior season. She also was named to the Dean’s List last year and earned athletic director’s honor roll and as a Red & Black Scholar status. Playing 34 rounds last season, the Miamisburg, Ohio, native put together a 75.44-stroke average and three top-20 finishes.
Gramley, who graduated in the spring with a 3.790 cumulative GPA and a bachelor’s degree in business, is a first-time honoree. She registered a 3.86 GPA in the spring, earning Dean’s List accolades. Additionally, she was named to the AD honor roll and secured Red & Black Scholar status. The Sharon, Pa., native logged a 77.32-stroke average for her career.
Hartlage and Shah also are first time recipients of the academic honor.
A freshman, Hartlage excelled on and off the course. The Elizabethtown, Ky., native earned a 4.0 GPA in both the fall and spring semesters to secure a spot on the all-ACC Academic Women’s Golf Team.
The ACC Freshman of the Year, Hartlage had a team-leading 73.50 stroke average, a mark that ranks sixth best in a season in program history. She set the school’s freshman record, with 14 rounds even or below par – a mark that is third best among all UofL golfers since 2005. Her nine top-20 showings are tied for the second most in a season in program history.
Shah played 16 rounds in her first year with the Cardinals and recorded a 78.75-stroke average.
