PASADENA, Calif. – A season after becoming the first Regals golfer to collect a hole-in-one, Jenna Gimbel earned another first for the CLU women’s golf program on Wednesday as she was named to the Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (SCIAC) All-Academic Team.

In order to be eligible, a student-athlete must have at least a 3.40 cumulative grade point average at his or her current institution, must have completed one full calendar year at that institution and must have reached sophomore athletic eligibility.

The junior transfer from Saint Leo University in Florida made an immediate impact for the Regals in 2014. She became just the second CLU player to earn all-conference honors as she was named Second Team All-SCIAC. The Ponte Vedra, Fla. native led the Regals with a team-leading 80.82 stroke average.

Gimbel’s season was highlighted when she had a hole-in-one albatross on a par-4 at the Talking Rock Golf Course in Prescott, Ariz. Off the course, Gimbel is currently majoring in psychology.

In total, 10 women’s golfers made the list with Pomona-Pitzer and Redlands leading the way with three selections each.
