Stanford junior Brooke Seay received the Elite 90 Award, presented to the student-athlete with the highest cumulative grade-point average participating across each of the NCAA’s 90 championship sites.

Founded by the NCAA 13 years ago, the Elite 90 recognizes the true essence of the student-athlete by honoring individuals who reach the pinnacle of competition at the national championship level in their sports, while also achieving the highest academic standards among their peers.

Eligible student-athletes include two-year participants at their schools in their sports as active team members – sophomore or above – traveling as designated members of the squad at the championship.

Seay holds a 4.0 cumulative grade point average, majoring in human biology. She was presented with the award Sunday, May 22, with coverage of the presentation to be included as part of GOLF Channel’s live coverage of the championship taking place on Monday, May 23.

“Think of all the days of travel and commitment we have as a team,” said Anne Walker, Stanford head coach. “We are a year-round sport; we aren’t a seasonal sport. For Brooke to do that, it’s unbelievable. And to be ranked in the Top 15 in the country, plus have the highest GPA in the whole field, it’s hard to wrap your head around how good that is!”
