CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Recent Harvard graduate Rohan Ramnath '16 and rising seniors Daniel De La Garza and Kendrick Vinar have been named Cleveland Golf/Srixon All-America Scholars as announced by the Golf Coaches Association of America (GCAA).
Ramnath earned the distinction for a second-straight year after graduating in May with a concentration in applied mathematics. This year's team captain, he led the Crimson to the program's first Ivy League championship in 41 years as the squad held off a late charge by Dartmouth for a four-stroke victory. Ramnath owned the team's second-lowest scoring average this season at 73.41 and ranks third in program history with a career scoring average of 74.14.
De La Garza, who was an All-Ivy League second team selection after tying for 10th place at the Ivy championships, and Vinar each earned All-America Scholar distinction for the first time. De La Garza's per-round average sat at 74.68 for the year while Vinar averaged 74.07 strokes.
To be eligible for Cleveland Golf/Srixon All-America Scholar status an individual must be a junior or senior academically, have posted a scoring average below 76.0 while competing in at least 50 percent of his team's competitive rounds, and have maintained a 3.2 GPA.
