CORAL SPRINGS, Fla. (July 2, 2014) – With the 2013-14 season already in the books, Clara Teixeira and Paige Lyle can add one more accolade to their season as they were named WGCA All-American Scholars, it was announced Wednesday.

A total of 664 student-athletes from Divisions I, II and III were bestowed this prestigious honor.  This is Teixeira’s third All-American Scholar award, while Lyle is receiving the award for the first time.

Teixeira, a junior from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, worked her way into nine tournaments during the 2013-14 season.  She matched a season-low 73 on two occasions in the Tars’ opening tournament in Texas and at the Guy Harvey Invitational.  Her best three-round score came at the Lady Moc Classic, where she finished with 228 strokes.  Teixeira concluded the season with two top-10 finishes and a 77.68 stroke average.

In her first season with Rollins, Lyle earned a starting spot in 11 of the Tars’ 12 tournaments, including the NCAA Division II National Championship.  She posted two top-10 finishes, while matching a career-low 73 on four occasions.  Lyle registered a 77.94 stroke average to conclude her first 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 and had to have competed in 60 percent of your team’s regular season schedule.
