Appalachian State University women’s golf sophomores Kristina Boo (Hassleholm, Sweden/Tekniska Skola) and Rumbidzai Masamvu (Harare, Zimbabwe/Dominican Convent) were named to the All-American Scholar team by the National Golf Coaches Association on Friday.

The prestigious honor is awarded only to golfers with at least a 3.50 cumulative grade point average through the 2010-11 season. The pair are the first Mountaineers to win the award since Mary Kate Bowman in 2009.
Boo ranked second on the squad this season with a 78.05 stroke average and three top-five finishes Her stroke average ranks fourth in the program’s single-season record book. The Hassleholm, Sweden native was ASU’s low scorer in 4-of-9 tournaments on the year and is the program’s career leader in stroke average at 79.26 strokes per round.
Masamvu tallied just one stroke more than Boo in 22 rounds on the year to finish with 78.06 strokes per round. She tied for 11th place at the Southern Conference Tournament to lead the Apps and carded her season-low 72 at the Wendy’s Charleston Southern  Intercollegiate in October.
Boo and Masamvu finished second and third, respectively, in March’s Low Country Intercollegiate to propel the Apps to their first tournament win since 2004. Coach Heather Brown’s team finished the season with a program-record 313.41 stroke average in 2010-11, more than two strokes ahead of the former record, set in 2009-10.
