Dukeminier Named League's Top Men's Golf Scholar
Release Date: 06/24/2011
The Eugene standout and first-team 2011 Capital One Academic All-American completed his collegiate career in a tie for 29th in last month’s NCAA Southeast Regional, shooting a 2-over-par 218. Included in his 54-hole total was a career low-tying 66 in the opening round of the regional championships in Ocala, Fla.
Dukeminier also tied with teammate Andrew Vijarro for 11th at this year’s conference championships with a 4-over 284 to help the Ducks finish in a first-place tie in the league’s team race.
The three-time first-team academic all-conference choice and 2010 third-team academic All-American caps his four-year collegiate career seventh on the school’s all-time list with a career scoring average of 73.21.
In addition to earning his undergraduate degree in general science with a grade point average of 4.03, he was the recipient of last year’s men’s golf NCAA Elite 88 Award, which is presented to the student-athlete with the highest cumulative GPA participating at each of the 88 NCAA championships.
Six additional Oregon spring sport athletes also were nominated as their sport’s top conference scholar-athlete – Duncan MacDonald-Korth, men’s tennis; Claire Michel, women’s track & field; Erica Omlid, women’s golf; Pavlina Smatova, women’s tennis; Kaitlin Vitek, softball; and Alex Wolff, men’s track & field.
Dukeminier joins Oregon senior Alexandra Koskinski, who was previously named the conference’s women’s cross country Scholar-Athlete of the Year.
