Alexandria native Bryce Hanstad recently was named a Cleveland Golf/Srixon All-American Scholar for the second straight year after performing well on the golf course and in the classroom at Colorado State University this past year.
Hanstad graduated this past May with a degree in business administration and a cumulative GPA of 3.47. He was one of 119 Division I players selected by the Golf Coaches Association of America for the honor.
On the course, Hanstad led the Rams to the NCAA regional in Bremerton, Washington. He shot a three-round score of 215, tying for eighth place individually. He helped the Rams to a pair of Mountain West Conference championships over his final three seasons at CSU.
