MUNCIE, Ind. -- Five Ball State women’s golfers were named Monday as All-America Scholars by the Women’s Golf Coaches Association (WGCA), tying for the most selections of any NCAA Division I team in the country.

Departing seniors Autumn Duke and Zoe Camus were recognized along with rising senior Sarah Westaway, rising junior Jenna Hague and rising sophomore Karley Dobis. The Cardinals were one of 15 D-I programs with five recipients.

It is the second year in a row Duke, Hague and Westaway have been honored. The Cardinals have now had at least three selections in each of the past eight years, including five honorees three times (2005-06, 2006-07 and 2012-13).

“We have historically done well with this award, and it is one that we take very seriously,” Ball State coach Katherine Mowat said. “Our players take a lot of pride in academics, and for half our team to be recognized at the national level like this is rewarding.”

To be nominated for All-America Scholar recognition, golfers must maintain a cumulative GPA of 3.50 or higher and compete in at least 50 percent of their team's competitive rounds during the year.

Ball State is coming off a 2012-13 season in which it tied the program record with four tournament victories. Hague, a first-team All-Mid-American Conference selection, joined fellow All-America Scholars Camus, Duke and Westaway in playing every event for the Cardinals. Dobis competed in eight tournaments as a freshman.
