PITTSBURGH -- Point Park University's Ashley Funkhouser has been named a Daktronics-NAIA Women's Golf Scholar-Athlete for 2013, and the junior from Pleasant Hills, Pa., is the first player in the four-year history of Pioneers women's golf to achieve that honor.
To be eligible for the Daktronics-NAIA Scholar-Athlete honor, student-athletes must be a junior or senior with a 3.5 GPA or higher. Funkhouser, who has a 3.77 GPA as a business major, is the first Point Park women's golfer to reach junior status with a GPA of 3.5 or above.
