The Mineral Area golf program has attained several academic honors – both individual and collective – in five years under head coach Don Huff.
Perhaps the strongest accolade was earned on Wednesday as the Cardinals were named NJCAA Division II Academic National Champions for the first time.
Mineral Area posted a 3.52 team GPA, and was among only three NJCAA Division II squads to secure All-Academic status with a composite 3.0 GPA or better.
The awards are issued by the Golf Coaches Association of America.
Sophomore standout Tyler Fieser qualified for the national tournament, placing 36th overall, and was joined by Dylan White and Ricardo Devoto on the all-Region 16 team last spring.
