NORMAN, Okla. – Binghamton golfer Jack Sedgewick has been selected as a Cleveland Golf/Srixon All-America Scholar as announced by the Golf Coaches Association of America (GCAA). Sedgewick, who enters his senior season in 2014-15, was one of 207 Division I student-athletes who held such a distinction that required over 50 percent participation, a stroke average of 76.0 or better and a minimum grade-point average of 3.2.
Sedgewick, a native of Newmarket, Ontario, had a stellar junior campaign in 2013-14. He competed in 10-of-11 tournaments for the Bearcats and played a large role in yet another successful BU season that included a program record for scoring average (298.5) and a pair of tournament titles. Sedgewick finished third on the team with a scoring average of 75.4 and had three top-10 finishes. He notched a career-best fifth place finish at the Fairleigh Dickinson Spring Invitational in a winning effort and also finished tied for sixth out of 93 competitors playing in the Temple Invitational back in early October.
Equally impressive is Sedgewick’s standing in the classroom at Binghamton. The Management major has been on the AD Honor Roll (3.3 GPA or higher) at Binghamton in 5-of-6 semesters and recently was inducted into the National College Athlete Honor Society (Chi Alpha Sigma) on April 23.
The selection is the sixth for Binghamton since joining the Division I ranks in 2002 and last since 2010 (Jake Katz). Overall, BU has nine GCAA selected All-America Scholars, with the first selection coming in 1993 by Chris Sladish (Div. III).
