J.R. Wade Named All-America ScholarJune 20, 2002 · MT Media Relations
"J.R. has been a model student and player since the day he arrived on campus and I am extremely proud of this honor," head coach Johnny Moore said. "He is in an elite group."
To earn Cleveland Golf All-America Scholar status, student-athletes must play in at least 70 percent of their team's competitive rounds, maintain a minimum 3.2 grade-point average and a scoring average under 76.
Wade was the only All-America Scholar from the state of Tennessee, and joined Denver's Erik Billinger and John Hulwick as the lone Sun Belt Conference representatives.
The Glasgow, KY, native finished his senior year with the team's top stroke average of 72.9 and shot a low-round of 68 in the seasons third tournament. Wade was the Blue Raiders' top finisher in six of the 10 tournaments he competed in.
