Rising senior Clayton Forren of the Longwood University men’s golf team was one of 212 Division I athletes named Cleveland Golf/Srixon All-America Scholars, as announced last week by the Golf Coaches Association of America (GCAA).

He becomes the first Longwood golfer to receive the accolade since Kenny Leech and Austin Gray did so in 2012, becoming one of seven players in Longwood’s Division I era to be honored.

To be eligible for Cleveland Golf/Srixon All-America Scholar status, an individual must be a junior or senior academically, compete in at least three full years at the collegiate level, participate in 50 percent of his team’s competitive rounds, have a stroke-average under 76.0 in Division I and maintain a minimum cumulative career grade-point average of 3.2. In addition, a recipient must also be of high moral character and be in good standing at his college or university.
