CORAL SPRINGS, Fla. -- Barry's Taylor Babcock and Francesca Perini were named National Golf Coaches Association NCAA Division II Scholar All-Americans Friday.

Both women's golfers are part of a 585-member class of student-athletes from Divisions I, II and III who carried a grade point average above 3.5.

This marks 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 eight 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 Feb. 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 Feb. 20.
