WALNUT CREEK, Calif. - Washington State University placed a combined six athletes on the Pacific-10 Conference All-Academic men and women's golf teams, as announced by Pac-10 Commissioner Tom Hansen, Thursday.
Tasha Browner garnered a women's first team selection for the second consecutive year becoming the first WSU women's golfer to achieve that feat. Browner, who ended her WSU career with a school record 12 top-10 finishes, carried a 3.78 GPA in psychology. Incoming senior Donna Bell, who recorded a 3.47 GPA in accounting, earned a second team nod for the second straight year.
On the men's side, Roger Flynn, who carried a 3.90 GPA in mechanical engineering, capped his WSU career in style with a third consecutive first team selection. Flynn became the second WSU men's player to earn three first team selections as Chris Jorgenson achieved the trifecta from 1992-94.
In addition to Flynn, Jon Reehoorn garnered a second team nod for the second time in his career (2000). Reehoorn, who had a 3.21 GPA in communications, finished his collegiate career holding school marks in career top-10 finishes (12) and career top-25 finishes (28).
To be eligible for selection to the academic team, a student-athlete must have a minimum 3.0 grade point average and either be a starter or significant contributor.
