NORMAN, Okla. – UNCG men’s golfer and recent graduate Joseph Cansler has been named a Srixon/Cleveland Golf All-America Scholar by the Golf Coaches Association of America (GCAA), the organization announced Wednesday. Cansler had a 3.86 cumulative GPA and also earned a selection to the Southern Conference Spring All-Academic Team this year.
