Indianapolis, Ind. – Senior Youngstown State women's golfer Megan Creager and has been voted to the 2018-19 Horizon League Women's Golf All-Academic Team for her success on the course and in the classroom, the conference announced on Friday.

Creager was also named the league's all-academic team last season. She competed in 10 events as a senior this season with two top-20 finishes and four in the top 25. Her best finish of the campaign came when she placed 15th at the Savannah State Invitational. She concludes her career ranked 10th in program history with 75 birdies, and 12th with 76 rounds played.

At least one YSU women's golfer has earned all-academic honors in each of the past seven seasons. Creager is the ninth player in program history to be tabbed to the Horizon League All-Academic Team multiple times.

"I am extremely proud of the work that Megan has put in on and off the course over the past four years," YSU head coach Nate Miklos said. "As our only senior this season, she provided valuable leadership and our program will miss her greatly. Her outstanding work in the classroom while balancing the demands of being a student-athlete has been beyond impressive, and she has set a great example for the rest of our team moving forward."

In the classroom, Creager boasts a 3.86 grade-point average as a marketing management major and was the 2018-19 recipient of YSU's Lester F. Donnell Scholarship. She is a three-time WGCA All-American Scholar, and four-time member of the Horizon League Academic Honor Roll. The Milford, Ohio, native has been named to the Dean's List for seven semesters, and President's List for two semesters. She is also a member of the academic honor society Beta Gamma Sigma.

The Horizon League recognizes student-athletes with seasonal Academic All-League Teams in each of its 19 championship sports. To be eligible for Academic All-Horizon League consideration, a student-athlete must have a cumulative grade-point-average of 3.20 or higher (based on a 4.00 scale) and have completed at least one year at the member institution, having earned 24 semester-hour or 36 quarter-hour credits.
