CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Recent Harvard graduates Tiffany Lim '15 and Brenna Nelsen '15, along with rising junior Anne Cheng, have been named as Women's Golf Coaches Association (WGCA) All-American Scholars.

For Lim, this marks the fourth consecutive year she has received the accolade from the WGCA. Nelsen has received the distinction three times, with Cheng earning her first. To be named an All-American Scholar, student-athletes must maintain a cumulative GPA of 3.5 on a 4.0 scale.

The trio helped Harvard to its fourth consecutive Ivy League championship this past season as the Crimson became the first women's golf program in Ancient Eight history to win four-straight crowns. As the conference champion, Harvard also made its fourth-consecutive trip to the NCAA Regional Championships, where it recorded the program's best-ever finish with a 10th-place result.

Cheng and Nelsen were named to the All-Ivy League first and second teams, respectively, after finishing tied for fourth and tied for eighth at the conference tournament. Lim, meanwhile, finished just behind the pair in a tie for 14th place.

Lim, the 2012 Ivy League Rookie of the Year and a two-time All-Ivy recipient, graduated in May with a 3.743 GPA as a statistics concentrator. She was twice honored with the team's Leslie E. Greis '80 MVP Award, and in 2013 was named as the team's Biff Jeeks Harvard Golf Award winner.

Nelsen completed her degree in history and science with a 3.917 GPA. In 2013, she was presented with the team's Warren Smith Sportsmanship Award.

Cheng, the 2014 Ivy League individual champion and Rookie of the Year, has been named to the All-Ivy League first team in each of her first two years in Cambridge. She currently maintains a 3.549 GPA as a neurobiology concentrator, and received the Warren Smith Sportsmanship Award following her freshman campaign.
