UW-Oshkosh sophomore Kayla Priebe was one of 952 golfers named an All-American Scholar by the Women's Golf Coaches Association (WGCA) for the 2016-17 academic year.
Priebe, who owns a 4.0 cumulative grade point average as an accounting major, was also selected a WGCA All-American Scholar following the 2015-16 academic year.
Last fall, Priebe earned All-WIAC First Team honors for the second consecutive year after being the only league player to average less than 80 strokes per round. Her 18-hole average of 78.5 strokes led the WIAC by nearly two strokes and helped UW-Oshkosh finish second at the league championship.
Priebe concluded the 2016-17 season by averaging 79.3 strokes. She captured first place at the UW-Oshkosh Titan Classic, second place at the Mad Dawg Invitational and third place at both the WIAC Championship and UW-Whitewater Invitational.
This past May, Priebe was named to the 10-member NCAA Division III All-Central Region First Team by the WGCA and to the 11-member NCAA Division III Academic All-District™ Six Women's At-Large First Team by the College Sports Information Directors of America.
During the 2015-16 season, Priebe averaged 82.7 strokes per round to help UW-Oshkosh capture the WIAC title and finish 14th at the NCAA Division III Championship. She finished second at the WIAC and 49th at the NCAA Division III championships.
