ATHENS, Ga. — Georgia’s Caroline Craig, Caterina Don and Isabella Holpfer have been named All-American scholars by the Women’s Golf Coaches Assoication (WGCA).
The criteria for selection to the All-American Scholar Team is among the most stringent in all of college athletics, with a minimum GPA of 3.50 required. Since its inception in 1986, 24 Georgia golfers have now received the award a combined 44 times.
This season marked the third consecutive year that Craig and Don, who are juniors, have earned the honor, while Holpfer, a sophomore, was recognized for a second-straight year.
Craig, a Sport Management major from Sautee Nacoochee, Ga., participated in eight tournaments during the 2021-22 season. She recorded a 74.39 stroke average over 23 rounds, with seven par-or-better efforts. Craig posted one top-10 and three top-20 individual finishes on the season, led by a fourth-place showing at the Reynolds Lake Oconee Invite. She also was named to the SEC Community Service team earlier this spring for the second time in as many years.
Don, a native of Pinerolo, Italy, who is majoring in Mathematics, was one of only two Bulldogs to compete in every team tournament during the season and helped lead Georgia to a fifth-place finish at the NCAA Championships. She wrapped up the campaign with a 73.61 average and completed 12 of 36 loops at a par-or-better pace. Don recorded a trio of top-10 individual performances, with a best effort being her runner-up showing at the Lady Bulldog Invitational.
Holpfer, a Journalism major from Vienna, Austria, was in Georgia’s lineup for eight tournaments and also competed in the Lady Bulldog Invitational, which was an individual tournament. She completed 26 rounds with a 73.92 average, including seven par-or-better tallies. Holpfer finished in the top 10 individually at two tourneys. She tied for fifth at the Lady Bulldog and tied for sixth at the Illini Invitational, where she led Georgia to the team title as well.
