Trio of Golfers Named All-America Scholars

Former and Current Captain Honored

NEW HAVEN, Conn.—Yale men's golf senior captain William Davenport, 2013-14 captain Sam Bernstein '14 and fellow graduate Sean Gaudette '14 were named 2014 Division I All-America Scholars by the Golf Coaches Association of America in Norman, Okla., on Wednesday.

Bernstein, Davenport and Gaudette were three of just 208 Division I collegiate golfers around the nation to receive the honor. To be eligible for All-America Scholar status, players must be a junior or senior, have competed for at least three full years at the collegiate level, participate in 50 percent of his team's competitive rounds, have a stroke average under 76.0 in Division I and maintain a minimum GPA of 3.2. In addition, recipients must also be of high moral character and be in good standing at their college.

The trio's outstanding record has been ably supported by head coach Colin Sheehan '97, who himself was named Division I Northeast Region Coach of the Year earlier in the month, an award that he has won three times in the past four years.

"I want to congratulate Sam, Sean and Will for the award since I know how much they sacrifice during the academic calendar," said Sheehan. "While it has become an annual tradition for Yale golfers to receive this award, I am always impressed when they receive any award that factors exceptional athletic and academic achievements — it cuts to the core of the mission of Yale Athletics."

Report filed by James Lu '14, Yale Sports Publicity.
