Grace Summerhays Named to Academic All-District Team

GREENWOOD, Ind. – Sun Devil Women’s Golf sophomore Grace Summerhays earned a spot on the College Sports Communicators (CSC) Academic All-District Team, the organization announced this week.

Each year, the CSC (formerly known as CoSIDA) recognizes the top student-athletes in each sport with Academic All-District and All-American distinction. Women’s Golf is in the at-large category – with only the highest achievers in sports excluding than football, basketball, baseball, softball, and track & field – eligible candidates for the honor.

“We are excited for Grace’s dedication and hard work in the classroom be recognized,” Head Coach Missy Farr-Kaye. “She is a tremendous member of our team and very deserving on such an honor.”

Summerhays earns the distinction thanks to a fantastic effort in the classroom this semester. The Communications major has maintained a 4.0 GPA during her sophomore season, leading by example on and off the course. The selection to the CSC Academic All-District Team comes just a month after her breakout season with Sun Devil Women’s Golf ended with her being recognized as a Pac-12 First Team All-Conference performer. She becomes the first member of Sun Devil Women’s Golf to earn the exclusive honor since 2018 Pac-12 Scholar Athlete of the Year Roberta Liti also accomplished the feat in 2018.

Arizona State completed another excellent year in the classroom, emerging as one of the top academic institutions that also has Division I Athletics. Five total female student-athletes earned a spot on the CSC Academic All-District Award, with the Sun Devils filling all five of their allotted at-large spots.
