Lundgren, Strehl named All-America ScholarsJuly 25, 2016
In order to be eligible for the prestigious honor, student-athletes must be a junior or senior academically, be in at least their third year of intercollegiate competition, participated in at least 50 percent of his team’s competitive rounds, have a stroke average of 78.0 or less, maintain a cumulative grade point average of 3.2 or higher, and be of high moral character and in good standing at his institution.
Lundgren finished his junior year with a second team all-South Atlantic Conference selection and earned seven top-20 finishes, including four all-tournament team selections, and Brevard’s first individual win in three seasons at the Division I Hummingbird Invitational in November. He led the team in stroke average and finished in fewer strokes than 78.4 percent of his competitors on the season.
Strehl capped off his third year with the Royal Blue and White with a career-best 19th-place finish at the SAC Men’s Golf Championship in April to lead the Tornados. The 2013-14 Team MVP notched a top-10 and four top-20 finishes while finishing with a 77.7 stroke average. He carded his lowest round of the season at the conference championship.
Brevard’s pair of rising seniors joined 11 other SAC student-athletes on the list, including SAC Championship individual medalist Will Bundy of Coker and SAC Men’s Golfer of the Year and Division II stroke average leader Brad Hawkins of Tusculum. Ninety-one Division II men’s golfers nationwide received the honor from the GCAA.
