CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – The Harvard men's golf team has been crowned as the 2015 Academic National Champions for Division I, as announced Wednesday by the Golf Coaches Association of America (GCAA).

The GCAA annually recognizes men's golf programs with a combined GPA of 3.0 or better with All-Academic Team honors. Harvard posted the highest GPA among all Division I programs, and was one of 10 Division I programs with a GPA of 3.5 or better. A total of 169 programs from across all divisions earned All-Academic Team recognition.

This marks the first time Harvard has turned in the highest GPA in the nation since the award's inception in 2008-09, and is the third time in four years that the program has received All-Academic Team honors.

Harvard placed third at the 2015 Ivy League Championships, matching the program's best finish since taking second in 1995. The Crimson will return seven letterwinners to the course in 2015-16, including first team All-Ivy League selection Robert Deng and Ivy League Rookie of the Year Gregory Royston.
