MU's Anania, Rogers earn coaches' award for play, classwork
HUNTINGTON -- Brian Anania and Jeremy Rogers from the Marshall Thundering Herd men's golf team received Cleveland Golf/Srixon All-America Scholar recognition from the Golf Coaches Association of America.
To be eligible for the honors an individual must be a junior or senior academically, compete in at least three full years at the collegiate level, participate in 50 percent of his team's competitive rounds or compete in the NCAA Championships, have a stroke-average under 76.0 in Division I and maintain a minimum cumulative 3.2 GPA.
A recipient must also be of high moral character and be in good standing at his college or university.
Anania, a Hurricane native, averaged 74.8 shots in 29 rounds while sporting a 3.92 GPA in business management this season and was named to Conference USA's All-Academic Team. He finished in the top 15 in two tournaments, including a tie for sixth at the Davidson Invitational.
This award adds to an impressive list for Anania who has been named to the Dean's List in all five of his collegiate semesters. He was awarded the C-USA Commissioner's Academic Medal for the second time and was named to the C-USA Commissioner's Honor Roll for the third time.
Rogers averaged 75.7 shots per round last season. He finished in a tie for eighth at the Marshall Invitational and tied for 10th at the Davidson Invitational.
The Buckhannon, W.Va., native was on the C-USA Commissioner's Honor Roll for the second consecutive year.
