Southeastern's Hunter Earns Academic All-America Honors

Southeastern golfer Jeff Hunter has been named third team CoSIDA Academic All-American following his performance on the course and in the classroom over the 2013-14 season.

Hunter, a senior from Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada is a business major whose near 4.0 GPA also earned him Southeastern's Male Scholar Athlete of the Year honor.

Hunter helped SE to its second-straight Super-Regional appearance and was the only golfer on the roster to have played in all 11 team tournaments this season.

He boasts a 74.41 scoring average which is just plus-2.72 to par in 29 rounds. He posted the team's only individual tournament win this season with a victory at the Natural State Classic and added two other top-five finishes and three other top 10's.

Hunter twice matched his season low round of 69 and carded six rounds at par-or-better while finishing better than 78.3 percent of the competitors he faced over his 11 tournaments.

He becomes SE's first Academic All-American since baseball's Zack Humphrey was a second team selection udring the 2004 season.
