Former Dubuque Senior state golf champion Maddie Hawkins is one of four golfers from Bradley University to be named Women’s Golf Coaches Association All-American Scholars.
Hawkins is a junior to-be this fall with the Braves program and is a first-time honoree who appeared in six tournaments as a sophomore in 2018-19. Hawkins posted a 79.53 stroke average in her 17 rounds and earned the first top-10 finish of her career at the Babs Steffens Invitational by tying for 10th place. A civil engineering major with a 3.90 cumulative grade point average, Hawkins was even better in the spring with a 79.00 stroke average.
Hawkins won the Iowa Class 5A state championship to cap her senior season with the Rams in 2017.
The WGCA All-American Scholar team included 1,097 women’s collegiate golfers from NCAA Division I, II and III. The criteria for selection required a minimum 3.50-grade point average and participation in at least 50 percent of the rounds scheduled during the regular season.
