Golfers named Scholar All-Americans

Barry University’s Taylor Babcock (Lake Oswego, Oregon) and Francesca Perini (San Lazzaro, Italy) were named National Golf Coaches Association (NGCA) NCAA Division II Scholar All-Americans. Both female golfers are part of a 585-member class of student-athletes from Divisions I, II and III who earned a GPA above 3.5. This marked the third straight year Babcock received the honor. Perini, coming off her freshmen season, earned the award for the first time. Babcock, a sport management major who also was an NGCA honorable mention All-American strictly for her performance on the course, finished in the top 10 in seven events in 2011-12. She carried a 77.69 stroke average in her junior season. Babcock’s low round was a 72 at the Tusculum/Kiawah Inner Island Intercollegiate February 4. She was the first Buccaneer in four years to receive All-America acclaim. Perini, a management major, had an 81.05 stroke average with five top 25 finishes. She was 11th at the Barry-Lynn-Florida Tech Tri-Match. Perini had eight rounds in the 70s, including two in the South Regional and another at the National Championships. Her low round was a 75 at the Lady Moc Golf Classic February 20.
