EMU golfer named All-MAC honorable mention

Eastern Michigan University sophomore Brett White was added to the Academic All-Mid-American Conference honorable mention list when the conference announced its men’s golf scholastic honors, June 4. White, who plans on majoring in supply chain management, boasts a 3.49 GPA. This is the first year he has been eligible for the accolade.

The Academic All-MAC honor is given to a student-athlete who has excelled in athletics as well as academics. To qualify for this, a student-athlete must have a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.20 and have participated in at least one half of the contests for their particular sport. First-year students and junior college transfers in their first year of residence are not eligible for the award.

White played in eight tournaments during the 2013-14 campaign, recording a 75.6 average in 25 rounds played. He paced the Green and White at the MAC Championship finishing in eighth place with a five-over par 293 (71-76-78-68). The top-10 showing was the first of White’s career and the fourth by an EMU student-athlete throughout the season.

White also tied for 20th at the Talis Park Challenge (March 16-17) with a 228 (77-74-77). During the fall season, the Caledonia, Mich. native finished in 36th place at the Wolverine Intercollegiate (Sept. 16-17) with a 221 (77-75-69), while finishing tied for 56th at the Crooked Stick Intercollegiate (Oct. 14-15) with a 235 (75-79-81).
