Under the direction of Josh Gregory, the Jaguars won the 2010 NCAA Division I National Championship on June 6 in Ooltewah, Tenn., taking down Oklahoma State in the Match Play Finals at The Honors Course.
Off the course, ASU posted a collective 3.21 GPA in 2009-10 and was one of 64 Division I programs to receive the academic accolade. Rising junior Brendan Gillins posted the team’s highest GPA for the year with a perfect 4.0.
