LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. -- In an announcement made today from conference headquarters, Southwestern University's Cade Osgood was named the 2020 SCAC Men's Golf Elite 19 award winner.
Osgood, a senior from Austin, Texas, currently holds a 3.470 GPA and was a two-time All-SCAC performer and three-time All-American during his career at Southwestern, including in 2018 when he took medalist honors at the conference championship and was selected as SCAC Men's Golfer of the Year.
Due to the cancelation of the 2020 spring season, the criteria for the SCAC Elite 19 honor was modified. Awarded to the student-athlete who has completed the equivalent of at least 60 credit hours at his or her current institution and has at least a cumulative 3.25 GPA - for this spring only - a First or Second Team All-SCAC honor at any point of the student-athlete's career was enough to satisfy the all-conference requirement. Normally, the student-athlete must have earned All-SCAC First or Second Team honors in his/her sport for that particular season.
The SCAC Elite 19 award was established prior to the 2018-19 academic year and is meant to recognize the best of the best within each conference sponsored-sport as it relates to both academic and athletic achievement.
