Blinkhorn named to CoSIDA NAIA Academic Men's At-Large Team

By Christopher Coombs

Callum Blinkhorn of the Lindsey Wilson men's golf team was named to the CoSIDA NAIA Academic Men's At-Large Team, an award selected by CoSIDA (College Sports Information Directors of America), the organization announced on Tuesday.

The native of Culcheth, England held a 3.96-grade point average throughout his History coursework to pick up the honor.

Blinkhorn earns the honor based on his academic and athletic success. He was one of 10 men from across the NAIA to be named to the first team. The honor is the second first team selection of his career after picking up the honor last season as he added a second team selection during the 2018-19 season.

He is the only Lindsey Wilson men's golfer to ever receive the national recognition.

The at-large program for the Academic All-America(R) program includes the sports of Women's Beach Volleyball, Men's and Women's Bowling, Competitive Cheer, Competitive Dance, Men's and Women's Golf, Men's and Women's Lacrosse, Men's and Women's Swimming, Men's and Women's Tennis, Men's Volleyball and Men's and Women's Wrestling

Blinkhorn posted a 73.12 scoring average in 17 rounds this season before the season. He recorded six rounds of par or better during the season while winning one tournament. Blinkhorn finished in the top-10 in five events this season for the Blue Raiders.

In his 90 career rounds, Blinkhorn owns a 71.88 scoring average with a program-record nine career wins and 32 top-10 finishes.

In all, 15 of the 21 first team honorees between the men and women's teams were seniors or graduate students and 28 of the 42 members of the CoSIDA Academic All-American(R) team posted a 3.90 GPA or better.
