Kyle Pilgrim Earns Place on C-USA Golf All Academic Team

Sophomore Kyle Pilgrim

April 18, 2013

HOUSTON - University of Houston sophomore golfer Kyle Pilgrim earned his third academic award of the season from Conference USA when he was named to the league's All-Academic Team, the league announced Thursday morning.

Pilgrim, who has posted a 3.81 cumulative grade point average while studying accounting in the Honors College, was joined on the six-man All-Academic Team by Erik Brady (East Carolina), Brian Anania (Marshall), Grant Milner (Memphis), Martin Simonsen (UTEP) and two-time honoree Chris Worrell (Tulsa).

Earlier this month, Pilgrim received the C-USA Academic Medal for posting a GPA or 3.75 or higher and was named to the C-USA Commissioner's Honor Roll.

On the course, he has been a regular in director of golf Jonathan Dismuke's starting lineup. Competing in nine tournaments, he has tallied a 73.96 scoring average with nine rounds of par or better.

The Colleyville, Texas, native fired a career-low 68 in the first round at Houston's own Bayou City Collegiate Championships in late February and helped lead the Cougars to the team title at the Border Olympics in mid-March with a career-best, third-place showing at that event.

Pilgrim and his Cougar teammates return to action this weekend when they compete at the Conference USA Championships at Texarkana Country Club. The three-day, 54-hole event tees off Sunday morning and wraps up Tuesday afternoon.

The winner of the league's annual postseason event earns an automatic bid to the NCAA Regionals. This will be the last C-USA Championships for the Cougars, who are set to join the new American Athletic Conference for the 2013-14 season.
