The National Golf Coaches Association recently announced that former Gopher Jackie Shepherd has been named to the NGCA’s All-American Scholar Team. It is the second consecutive season Shepherd has been named a NGCA Scholar.

The criteria for selection to the All-American Scholar Team are some of the most stringent in all of college athletics. A minimum grade point average of 3.50 is required for consideration.

Shepherd, a four-year Gopher letterwinner, recently graduated from the Carlson School of Management with a double major of accounting and finance. She finished her collegiate career with a stroke average of 77.49, the third-lowest in program history. 

Also a multiple Academic All-Big Ten honoree, Shepherd played in 39 career tournaments as a Golden Gopher .

A total of 644 NCAA Division I, II and III golfers earned All-American Scholar honors for 2013.
