Cal State East Bay men's golfer Chris Herzog has been named as a 2013 Cleveland Golf/Srixon Division II All-America Scholar by the Golf Coaches Association of America (GCAA). Herzog was one of 52 Division II student-athletes honored by the GCAA, which annually recognizes the top golfers on the course and in the classroom across all three NCAA divisions and the NAIA. This is the second consecutive year Herzog has earned All-America Scholar honors.

The Medford, Ore. native was the Pioneers' top golfer during his final two seasons at East Bay. After being named CSUEB's Male Athlete of the Year as a junior in 2012, he followed it up with an outstanding senior campaign. Herzog led the Pioneers with a 73.66 scoring average for the 2012-13 season. He finished in the top-10 in five tournaments, landed in the top-20 in three others, and was the champion of the NDNU Argonaut Invitational.

Herzog has racked up an impressive list of postseason honors. He was selected to the GCAA All-West Region team and the All-California Collegiate Athletic Association (CCAA) team. He was also twice named CCAA Golfer of the Week during the spring.

Way to go, Chris!
