STARKVILLE, Miss. – Following outstanding years on the course and in the classroom, Robi Calvesbert and Joe Sakulpolphaisan have been named All-American Scholars by the Golf Coaches Association of America.

“This is a great honor for Robi and Joe that shows their focus on being great student-athletes,” MSU coach Clay Homan said. “They worked extremely hard on and off the course this year and earned this recognition. To be able to maintain their GPA with the time they are required to put into golf is tremendous.”

Calvesbert graduated this spring with a degree in risk management, insurance and financial planning. He posted a 73.64 scoring average on the season to go along with seven top-25 cards, including a tie for seventh in the Seminole Intercollegiate (69-72-69=210, -6).

Calvesbert was also selected to represent his home country of Puerto Rico in the 2012 World Cup Amateur Championship hosted in Turkey.

Sakulpolphaisan, a business administration major, posted a 73.10 scoring average. He notched a top-25 finish in all but three of MSU’s 13 events, including a trio of top-10 cards. His best finish came when he fired a 10-under-par 206 (68-70-68) to finish runner-up in the Seminole Intercollegiate.

They are MSU’s 10th and 11th GCAA All-American Scholars and the first since Noah Goldman received the honor in 2009. It is only the second time in MSU history two Bulldogs have made the list in the same season (Josh Oller and Noah Goldman in 2008).

To be eligible for All-America Scholar status an individual must be a junior or senior academically, compete in at least three full years at the collegiate level, participate in 70-percent of his team’s competitive rounds or compete in the NCAA Championships, have a stroke-average under 76.0 in Division I, 78.0 in Division II, 77.0 in NAIA and 79.0 in Division III, and maintain a minimum cumulative 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.
