In order to receive the honor, student-athletes must maintain a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.50. Hutchinson and Montgomery, both of whom completed their junior season in 2011-12, were among 585 female golfers nationally recognized at the Division I, II and III levels.

Hutchinson, a native of Detroit Lakes, Minn., is an accounting major with a 3.576 cumulative grade point average.
