Said Clara, Scottish women's amateur champion in 2015 and beaten finalist this year:
"I am very happy to be named to the team but I couldn't have done it without the continued support from staff at Mizzou Athletics and the Trulaske College of Business."

"It's a fantastic honour for Cayce and Clara to receive this academic achievement in our sport," Mizzou Women's Golf head coach Stephanie Priesmeyer said. "We have one of the toughest criteria to earn this type of honour in collegiate athletics. It's certainly a testament to their dedication, discipline and work ethic that makes this possible."
WGCA All-American Scholars must record a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.50, while participating in at least 60-percent of their team's tournaments.
