Serina Combs is proficient on the golf course, but the rising senior is exemplary in the classroom.

The Presbyterian College golfer has been named a Women’s Golf Coaches Association All-American Scholar for the 2019-20 season. It is the third straight year Combs has been honored by the WGCA, having also been named following her freshman and sophomore seasons.

A total of 1,401 women's collegiate golfers received this prestigious honor. The criteria for the All-American Scholar Team are some of the more stringent in all of college athletics, with a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.50.

A political science and history double major, Combs was selected to the Big South all-academic team earlier this spring. The Lake Worth, Fla., native collected her first top 10 as a Blue Hose, finishing fifth at the Starmount Fall Classic. She posted a collegiate-best 75.94 stroke average for the season, the sixth-best average of the program's NCAA Division I era (2007-present). As Combs enters her senior year in 2020-21, her career 78.57 stroke average ranks fourth in the D1 era.

The Big South boasted a total of 23 WGCA honorees and also had eight men's golfers honored by their coaches' association, the Golf Coaches Association of America.
