Kotler, Lust are named GCAA All-America Scholars

NORMAN, Okla. — The list of 2021-22 Srixon/Cleveland Golf All-America Scholars for NCAA Division III were announced by the Golf Golf Coaches Association of America (GCAA). Among the honorees were recent Kenyon College graduates Andrew Kotler and Nick Lust.

To be eligible for Srixon/Cleveland Golf All-America Scholar consideration, a student-athlete had to be a sophomore, junior or senior both academically and athletically. In addition, the nominee had to participate in 50 percent of his team’s competitive rounds, had to have a stroke average under 79.0 and had to maintain a minimum cumulative career grade point average of 3.2. Additionally, the nominee must also be of high moral character and be in good standing at his college or university.

Kotler and Lust were two key golfers in one of Kenyon’s best seasons ever. They helped the Owls win the first North Coast Athletic Conference (NCAC) Championship in program history and capped off the season with a program-best 15th-place showing at the NCAA Division III Championship.

Kotler, who is now a two-time GCAA All-America Scholar, played all 24 rounds for Kenyon during the 2021-22 season and carved out a 76.73 scoring average. He logged a pair of top-10 individual finishes, tied for 11th at the NCAC Championship and tied for 48th at the NCAA Division III Championship. 

Lust also played all 24 rounds for Kenyon and posted a 74.91 scoring average, the second-best mark on the team. He had a trio of top-10 individual finishes, including taking medalist honors at the NCAC Championship, where he carded both a Kenyon and course record score of 64 in the second round of play. He went on to tie for 19th place among the 221 golfers at the NCAA Division III Championship. Lust is now a three-time recipient of the GCAA All-America Scholar award.
