CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – The Harvard men's golf team has been received President's Special Recognition status from 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 was one of 24 Division I programs, and one of just two in the Ivy League, with a GPA of 3.5 or better to receive the President's Special Recognition, marking the fourth time in five years the program has accomplished the feat.
Harvard won its first Ivy League championship in 41 years this season as it held off Dartmouth by four strokes at Metedeconk National Golf Club April 20-22. The victory earned the Crimson its first trip to the NCAA Regional Championships, and was one of two tournament victories for the squad after winning the MacDonald Cup in the fall. Harvard finished the year with its highest ever national ranking according to Golfstat (101).
