July 6, 2012

LAS VEGAS (UNLVRebels.com) – Three UNLV women's golf student-athletes have been named 2011-12 All-America Scholar recipients, the National Golf Coaches Association announced this week.

UNLV's selections to the team were seniors senior Bethany Calvo (Fine Arts), and sophomores Charlotte Brooks (Hotel Administration) and Katerina Prorokova (Business).

"It’s a big accomplishment for these student-athletes," said head coach Amy Bush. “Bethany capped off a great career with us by earning her fourth straight honor and Katerina and Charlotte continue to set the example that was shown for them."

Calvo became just the third women’s golfer in program history to earn the All-America status for a fourth straight season, joining departed seniors Therese Koelbaek and Alejandra Guacaneme from a year ago. Prorokova notched her second honor in as many years while Brooks enjoys her first as a Rebel.

UNLV closed the season having qualified for its 10th consecutive NCAA Regional appearance in the 11th season as a program.

All three were also named to the 2012 Spring Academic All-MWC team, which was announced at the end of June.

A total of 585 women's collegiate golfers were recognized from NCAA Divisions I, II and III. The criteria for selection to the All-America Scholar teams includes carrying a minimum 3.50 cumulative grade point average and also having competed in at least 50 percent (Division I) or 66 percent (Division II and III) of their school's regularly scheduled competitive rounds during the year.
