To qualify for the WGCA All-America Scholar Team, golfers must have a cumulative GPA of at least 3.50. A total of 1,097 women's collegiate golfers were honored.

This is the second consecutive season Meder and Rioux made the team. Both were award recipients as freshmen during the 2017-18 season.

This is the first WGCA honor for DeLeeuw, a freshman from Hudsonville, Michigan (Hudsonville HS).

Meder is from Lansing, Michigan (Lansing Catholic Central). She is majoring in both biology and psychology.

Rioux is from Farmington, Michigan (Livonia Ladywood). She is majoring in mathematics education, with an emphasis on kindergarten through eighth grade.

"I would like to congratulate Abby, Jordan and Deanna," head coach Greg Stafford said. "It is an honor and privilege to coach these young ladies."
