Charlottesville, VA - Virginia women's golfer Nicole Agnello (Longwood, Fla.) has been named to the 2011 National Golf Coaches Association All-American Scholar Team. It marks the eighth consecutive year at least one Cavalier golfer has been honored by the organization. Agnello is one of 566 golfers from the Division I, II and III ranks to earn the distinction. She also earned the honor last season.
The criteria for selection to the All-American Scholar Team are some of the most stringent of all college athletics. The minimum cumulative GPA is 3.50 and student-athletes must have competed in at least 50 percent (Division I) or 66 percent (Division II & III) of the college's regularly scheduled competitive rounds during the year.
Agnello was a sophomore last season and is pursuing a degree in Kinesiology. In 2011 she finished the season with a 76.16 stroke average and played in 10 of 11 tournaments. She placed 37th at the NCAA Championships, helping the Cavaliers to a best-ever fourth-place finish. She was 10th at the ACC Championships.
Agnello was previously named to the Atlantic Coast Conference's All-Academic Golf Team for the second consecutive year.
