CORAL SPRINGS, Fla. – Franklin College women's golfers Hannah Sharkey and Mackenzie Black repeated as All-American Scholars when the Women's Golf Coaches Association (WGCA) announced its annual list of recipients.

Sharkey capped her playing career this past year, collecting WGCA Scholar All-America honors for the third consecutive academic year, becoming the first player in the history of the program to earn the award three times. Black, a junior this coming fall, repeated as a Scholar All-America nominee in her second collegiate campaign.

A total of 1,097 student-athletes from the NCAA and the NAIA earned recognition from the WGCA, who requires a 3.50 grade point average for a player to earn Scholar All-America status.
