ADA - East Central University golfer Zac Pool was named a Cleveland Golf/Srixon All-America Scholar for 2010, it was announced Thursday.
Pool, who just wrapped up his senior season with the Tigers this past spring, was one of 55 golfers from NCAA Division II institutions to be recognized. There were also 119 players from Division I schools, 22 from Division III and four from the NAIA level who received this honor.
To achieve this award, student athletes must be a junior or senior academically, compete in two full years at the collegiate level, participate in 70 percent of the team's competitive rounds or compete in the NCAA Championships, have a stroke average of 78.0 or better (Division II requirement), and must maintain at least a 3.2 grade point average. The student athlete must also be of high moral character and be in good standing with his college or university.
A native of Poteau, Pool capped off a magnificent career by finishing in a tie for 18th place at the NCAA Division II South Central Regional at The Territory in Duncan in early May as he missed the cut for nationals by just three strokes.
He had earlier earned a spot on the All-Lone Star Conference Second Team in 2010 as he captured one LSC Golfer of the Week award this past season and picked up seven top 10 finishes during his two-year career at ECU. One of those was capturing medalist honors at The Territory as a junior in the fall of 2008. Pool finished runner-up to teammate Travis Keeley as the Tigers won the team championship at the Texas A&M-Commerce Tournament this past spring.
Pool recorded three under-par rounds in 2009-10, including a 2-under-par 70 in the LSC Tournament at the WinStar Golf Course in Thackerville, and a 3-under 68 at the Wichita Falls (Texas) Country Club, both this past spring. He played two seasons at Arkansas-Ft. Smith before transferring to ECU.
