Three Wildcats named All-American Scholars

By The Mercury

Three Kansas State women’s golfers — Katherine Gravel-Coursol, Gianna Misenhelter and Scotland Preston — were each named to the Women’s Golf Coaches Association (WGCA) All-American Scholars team for the 2013-14 season.

Some of the most stringent in all of college athletics, the 664 student-athletes named to the team from NCAA Divisions I, II and III must hold a cumulative GPA of at least 3.50.

Preston was honored for a second straight year, while Gravel-Coursol and Misenhelter were first-time honorees. The three Wildcats to earn the nod are the most since K-State placed four on the squad following the 2009-10 season.

Misenhelter and Preston were both 2014 First-Team Academic All-Big 12 recipients. Gravel-Coursol, who had a 4.0 GPA during her freshman campaign, was named to the Big 12 Academic All-Rookie team as first-time students are not eligible for regular Academic All-Big 12 honors.

A senior from Overland Park, Misenhelter put together a 76.32 stroke average while competing in all 11 events with a season-best seventh-place finish at the BYU Entrada Classic.

Gravel-Coursol, from Mirabel, Quebec, saw time in 10 events, including a 24th-place showing at the Marilynn Smith/Sunflower Invitational, while Preston, a native of Mountainside, New Jersey, was the top Wildcat during the Diane Thomason Invitational by carding a 15-over par 231.
