MALIBU, Calif. - Pepperdine senior-to-be Liv Cheng earned Women's Golf Coaches Association All-American Scholar status for the second time in her career, the organization announced today.

An economics major, Cheng (Auckland, New Zealand/Macleans College) also received the award as a freshman in 2010-11. Among other criteria, golfers are required to have at least a 3.5 cumulative grade-point average.

Cheng is coming off a junior season in which she was named to the All-West Coast Conference first team for the third time. She posted a 75.78 stroke average and helped the Waves to their 12th consecutive WCC title. At one point in the spring, she recorded three straight top-10 finishes. Her tie for fourth place at the Farms Invitational was a career best.

Also a standout in the classroom, Cheng is a two-time Arthur Ashe Jr. Sports Scholar and WCC All-Academic first teamer.

This is the 16th time that a Wave has earned WGCA All-American Scholar status since 1995. Cheng is the fifth Pepperdine golfer to earn the award multiple times.
