Lincoln, Neb. - The Nebraska men's golf team earned its second consecutive Herman Award for highest team grade-point average at the 22nd annual Student-Athlete Recognition Banquet on Sunday at the Bob Devaney Sports Center.
"This is a great honor," Head Coach Bill Spangler said. "Winning this award is always one of our goals and to do it two years in a row is a tremendous achievement."
The men's golf team earned a GPA of 3.509 for the year, bettering its 3.422 GPA last year. Nine student-athletes were named to the UNL Student-Athlete Honor Roll for their work in the classroom during the fall 2011 semester.
The men's golf team returns to the course at the Big Ten Championship, April 27-29, at the Pete Dye Golf Course in French Lick, Ind.
