    EVANSTON, Ill. -- Northwestern senior Jack Perry (Santa Barbara, Calif./Santa Barbara) and junior Bennett Lavin (Deerfield, Ill./Deerfield) have been named Cleveland Golf/Srixon All-America Scholars, announced today by the Golf Coaches Association of America (GCAA).

    To be eligible for Cleveland Golf/Srixon All-America Scholar status in NCAA Division I, an individual must be a junior or senior academically, compete in at least two full years at the collegiate level, participate in 70 percent of his team's competitive rounds or compete in the NCAA Championships, have a stroke-average under 76.0 and maintain a minimum cumulative grade-point average of 3.2. A recipient must also be of high moral character and be in good standing at his college or university.

    The honor is the second of Perry's career and the first for Lavin. Northwestern has won 20 All-America Scholar awards during head coach Pat Goss' 18-year tenure, inclusive of recording at least one winner in each of the last nine seasons.

    In addition to his academic honor, Perry was named a unanimous All-Big Ten first-team selection and a GCAA PING All-Region choice for his play on the course this year.
