RE: Academic All-State selectees from Catholic Memorial High School

“The Golf Coaches Association of Wisconsin (GCAW) is pleased to announce that Drew North of Catholic Memorial High School is an Academic All-State honoree for the boys’ golf season that just concluded. Students are nominated by GCAW member coaches if they meet the following criteria: 1) A cumulative grade point average of at least 3.5, 2) participation in at least 75% of their team’s varsity matches, and 3) are at least a sophomore in high school. Drew is a student-athlete who serves as a great example to others, proving that academic and athletic successes are not mutually exclusive.

The coaches association believes it is noteworthy that 198 male golfers from around the state have been honored this year for maintaining high academic standards in the classroom while competing in varsity golf. In fact, the average cumulative GPA of this year’s 189 golfers is an exceptional 3.820.

The GCAW was formed by high school golf coaches in 1986 to help build Wisconsin's reputation for developing quality junior players by promoting golf in our schools and communities. Besides honoring both boys and girls who succeed as student athletes, the association also selects an annual All-State team for boys and girls based on their playing ability.
