ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. --- University of New Mexico men's golfers Nick Geyer and Travis Ross were named Division I Cleveland Golf/ Srixon All-America Scholars Thursday morning by the Golf Coaches Association of America. The two Lobos are among 119 division I golfers to receive the honor. The GCAA chooses this award annually.

This also marks the second year in a row Geyer has been named a Cleveland Golf/Srixon All-America Scholars.

To be eligible for Cleveland Golf/Srixon All-America Scholar status on the Division I level, 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 their team's competitive rounds or compete in the NCAA Championships and have a stroke-average under 76.0. According to a release sent out by the GCAA, a recipient must also be of high moral character and be in good standing at his college or university. They must also maintain a minimum cumulative grade-point average of 3.2.

A senior during the 2009-10 season, Geyer ended his career at New Mexico with a 3.83 GPA, having earned a bachelor's degree in communication and completed a year of Master's work in Sports Administration. He completed the 2009-10 season with a 73.97 stroke average over 38 rounds to finish with 74.09 (over 141 rounds) for his UNM career.

"Over my five years at UNM, academics has always been a priority," Geyer said. "That's the No. 1 goal of coming to a university - whether it's as a member of a golf team or just as a regular student - is to excel in the classroom and get a degree. I'm glad to have done so, as well as honored to be recognized by the coaches association."

Ross, who is majoring in Business Administration, completed his junior year with a 4.15 cumulative GPA. He completed his first season as a Lobo with a 73.39 stroke average over 38 rounds.
