Five members of the University of Missouri women’s golf team were honored for their work off the course on Monday, earning selection to the WGCA All-American Scholar Teams.

In addition to its strong year in the classroom, the Tigers set multiple records on the course in 2023-24. Mizzou posted a school-record with a 293.1 stroke average this season with five Tigers recording an individual mark under 75.00 for the first time in program history.
