Tiffin senior Jay Green is the recipient of the Elite 90 award for the 2018 NCAA Division II Men's Golf Championship.
Green, majoring in Exercise Science, currently carries a 3.91 GPA. Green was presented with the award during the sport banquet on May 20 in Muscle Shoals, Alabama.
The Elite 90, an award founded by the NCAA, recognizes the true essence of the student-athlete by honoring the individual who has reached the pinnacle of competition at the national championship level in his or her sport, while also achieving the highest academic standard among his or her peers. The Elite 90 is presented to the student-athlete with the highest cumulative grade-point average participating at the finals site for each of the NCAA's championships.
Eligible student-athletes are sophomores or above who have participated in their sport for at least two years with their school. They must be an active member of the team, traveling and a designated member of the squad size at the championship. All ties are broken by the number of credits completed.
Green becomes the second Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (GLIAC) student-athlete to earn an Elite 90 award this year after Ashland's Julie Worley achieved the honor for women's basketball.
