UCLA freshman Louise Ridderstrom earned All-Scholar honors from the Women’s Golf Coaches Assn, the organization announced Monday.
To qualify, female college golfers must have a 3.5 cumulative grade point average for the previous academic year.
In her freshman year, Ridderstrom, who is undeclared, had a cumulative GPA of 3.55.
She became the fourth player to receive WGCA All-Scholar honors during Coach Carrie Forsyth’s 14-year tenure.
In 2012-13, Ridderstrom, a native of Stocksund, Sweden, played 36 rounds and recorded 12 starts and a scoring average of 75.3. In her best finish at the Bruin Wave Invitational, she tied for seventh place.
