ATLANTA – Georgia State women’s golfers Emma Berlin and Petra Duran were honored on Tuesday by being named Women’s Golf Coaches Association (WGCA) All-American Scholars.

Both were honored for the first time for their work on the course and in the classroom.

A total of 1,097 women’s collegiate golfers were recognized with this prestigious honor.  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.

Berlin, who earned President’s List honors during both semesters over the last year, played in the first six tournaments as a freshman before an illness held her out until the conference championship. She compiled a 76.86 scoring average in 21 rounds of competition and earned a season-best tie for 19th at the Pinehurst Challenge.

The native of Stockholm, Sweden, is currently majoring in English.

Duran just completed her sophomore season earning Athletic Director’s Honor Roll in the fall and Dean’s List recognition during the spring. On the course, she played in all 10 tournaments during the year while compiling a 78.64 scoring average including a career-low round of 70. She finished in a career-best tie for ninth at the MSU Spring Citrus Challenge.

A biological science major hails Barcelona, Spain.

The 2019-20 season will get underway in mid-September after the team returns to campus in mid-August.
