WACO, Texas -
Senior Jon Antunes (Belton, Texas) has been named a Cleveland Golf All-America Scholar, the Golf Coaches Association of America announced today.
Antunes, a marketing major, becomes the fifth Bear to earn the honor (Kory Bowman - 1994; Chris Nickens - 1996, 1997; Worth Williams - 2000, 2001; Trevar Matheson - 2003). Earlier this season, Antunes was named to the Academic All-Big 12 First Team for the third straight year and has made the Big 12 Commissioner's Honor Roll six of his seven semesters at Baylor.
Antunes ranks third on the team with a 74.91 stroke average in 32 rounds. He has posted three Top-25 finishes this year and has helped lead the Bears to three Top-2 finishes, including a victory at the UTSA Roadrunner Intercollegiate.
To qualify as a Cleveland Golf All-America Scholar, a student-athlete must have competed in 70 percent of his team's competitive rounds, maintained a minimum 3.2 grade point average and a scoring average under 76.
The Bears return to action as they tune up for the NCAA Central Regional at The Maxwell hosted by Oklahoma State Saturday and Sunday at Dornick Hills Country Club in Ardmore, Okla.
