Valparaiso graduated senior Kyle Henning (Brookfield, Wis./East) repeated as a Cleveland Golf/Srixon All-America Scholar as the Golf Coaches Association of America announced this year's honorees this week.
The GCAA honored a total of 207 Division I players who were juniors or seniors academically, participated in at least 50 percent of his team’s competitive rounds during the season, had a stroke average of 76.0 or below during the 2013-14 season and maintained a cumulative GPA of at least 3.2. Henning was one of just two Horizon League men’s golfers to earn the award.
“This is a terrific post-season award that befits the tremendous year that Kyle had both on the golf course and in the classroom,” said Crusader head coach David Gring. “The balance that Kyle demonstrated with his studies, golf practices and tournaments throughout the entire academic and athletic school year is a great example of his leadership and his talent. Our team could not be happier for him and this well-deserved recognition.”
Henning earned All-Horizon League honors for a second consecutive season after setting a new Crusader single-season record with a 74.5 stroke average on the year, good for fifth in the league. He shot six par-or-better rounds on the season and posted a pair of top-10 finishes in his final year on the links for Valpo. In the classroom, Henning graduated with a 3.80 cumulative grade point average as a civil engineering major.
