NORTHFIELD, Minn.––Taylor Wells (Rochester, Minn./Century) has been named to the Women’s Golf Coaches Association (WGCA) All-American Scholar team for the second consecutive year.

Wells, also a two-time WGCA all-region and All-MIAC selection, carries a 3.94 grade point average while majoring in biology. The Knights’ career scoring average leader (81.17), her 81.32 stroke average in 2012-13 is the fourth-best in program history. She tallied top-10 finishes six times this past season, including a runner-up finish at the Wartburg Fall Invite where she fired a school-record eight-over par 152. Her even-par score of 72 at the MIAC Championships’ second round is also a school record.

Honorees must maintain a minimum 3.50 grade point average, play in 12 rounds, and hold a scoring average of 95.00 or lower to be eligible for the award at the Division III level.

Wells will participate in a study abroad program in Namibia this coming fall and will return to the Knights’ lineup in the spring.
