NORMAN, Okla. — The Golf Coaches Association of America (GCAA) released Wednesday its list of All-America Scholars for the 2022-23 season. Kenyon College golfers who earned the honor were senior Logan Spiess, juniors Garrett Thesing and Griffin Ward, and sophomore Armand Ouellette.
Those four Kenyon student-athletes were part of a group of 199 NCAA Division III recognized golfers. They met or exceeded the criteria, which included a stroke average under 79.0, a cumulative career grade point average of 3.2 or better and participation in at least 50 percent of their team’s competitive rounds. Additionally, nominees had to be in their sophomore, junior or senior season.
On the course, Ouellette led this group of Owls. He played in 25 rounds during the 2022-23 season, posted a 76.04 scoring average and logged one individual top-10 finish. Thesing’s statistics were very similar. He put up a 76.08 scoring average over 26 rounds of play.
Spiess carded 21 rounds of play during the season and Ward completed 26. Spiess concluded his final collegiate season with a scoring average of 76.81, while Ward recorded an average of 77.69, which included one individual top-10 finish.
Kenyon’s quartet of All-America Scholars matched the program’s high mark. The Owls had two honorees in each of the previous two seasons and the 2019-20 Kenyon squad was the first to have four honorees.
