WEST POINT, N.Y. - Junior golfer Scott Manley has been named to the 2004 NCAA Academic All-America Golf Team, as announced recently by the Golf Coaches Association of America (GCAA). Members of the Academic All-America Team must have a stroke average of 77 or lower and post at least a 3.2 cumulative grade point average.
A native of Dove Canyon, Calif., Manley is serving as the Black Knights' team captain this season. A former Patriot League "Player of the Year" as a freshman in 2002, Manley owns the lowest stroke average on the squad this season at 74.8. He is majoring in Economics and boasts an impressive 3.673 G.P.A.
Manley was named to the 2004 All-Patriot League team after tying for third place at the conference tournament in Hamilton, N.Y. He helped the Black Knights secure their second team title in three years with a three-round total of 232 (79-79-74). In seven tournaments this spring, Manley has recorded three sub-par rounds while also shooting even par three times. He carded a season-low 69 in the first round of the New England Championships in Providence, R.I., as Army finished third overall.
Manley's other accolades include selections to the 2003 All-New England team and the 2003 NCAA All-District I team. He is also the only player on the Army roster with NCAA Regional experience. Manley was the top Army finisher at the 2002 Central Regional in Little Rock, Ark., placing 108th with a 54-hole total of 234 (76-77-81). Army finished 26th in that regional with a composite score of 953 (319-318-316).
Army was one of 27 teams selected Monday to participate in the 2004 NCAA East Regional in New Haven, Conn., after earning the automatic bid to the tournament following its Patriot League Championship victory. The East Regional is hosted by Yale University and scheduled for May 20-22.
