Schricker becomes BSU Men's Golf’s first ever All-America Scholar Athlete

NORMAN, Okla. -- Bemidji State University men’s golf junior Seth Schricker became the program’s first ever Srixon/Cleveland Golf All-America Scholar Athlete announced by the Golf Coaches Association of America as a part of its academic award winners. Schricker is a part of a Beavers squad that earned its fifth straight GCAA All-Academic Team honor in 2020-21.

Schricker qualified for All-America Scholar Athlete status after finishing the season with a stroke-average under 78.0 in Division II play and a 3.2 GPA or better. He took part in three events during the spring season, including a fourth-place finish with a score of 155 (79-76/+11) April 2-3 at the UIU Spring Invite. Schricker earned his first career Spring NSIC All-Academic Team award this past season.

The sophomore from Minnetonka, Minn. was one of 187 men's golfers across the country from all levels of the NCAA, NAIA and NJCAA. He is joined by Thomas Huettl and Taylor Zack from Concordia University, St. Paul and Winona State University's Matt Chandler as the only four representatives from Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference member men's golf teams.

To be eligible for Srixon/Cleveland Golf All-America Scholar status an individual must be at least a sophomore academically and athletically. In addition, he must participate in 40-percent of his team’s competitive rounds, have a stroke-average under 78.0 in NCAA Division II, and maintain a minimum cumulative career grade-point average of 3.2. A recipient must also be of high moral character and be in good standing at his college or university.

Under head coach Ekren Miller, Bemidji State continues to excel on and off the course after taking second at the 2021 Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference Championship. The Beavers were one stroke off the lead to take the program’s highest finish at the conference meet since Miller took over in 2010. BSU has finished at least fourth at the conference meet over the last three seasons, excluding the 2020 season.

Nestled in Northern Minnesota’s wooded region and located on the shore of Lake Bemidji, Bemidji State University sponsors 15 varsity athletic programs with NCAA Division I men’s and women’s hockey membership in the Western Collegiate Hockey Association, while its 13 NCAA Division II programs hold membership in the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference (NSIC).
