USU golfer earns national award
The football team isn't the only one pulling in the awards and recognitions this week as Utah State's Tanner Higham has been named a Cleveland Golf/Srixon All-America Scholar for the second time it was announced by the Golf Coaches Association of America.
A senior from Shelley, Idaho, Higham boasts a GPA of 3.93 in nutrition, dietetics and food sciences. During the 2013-14 season, he played in 32 rounds with a scoring average of 73.28. He became the first Aggie to win a tournament since 1996 when he claimed the title at the Dash Thomas Memorial in September, 2013.
He competed in 11 tournaments during his senior season and earned four top-10 finishes.<
