Bult, McDonnough and Dykhouse were part of a Calvin women's golf team that finished fourth in the 2018 MIAA Fall season standings to qualify for the MIAA Spring AQ Tournament. At the MIAA Spring AQ Tournament, the Knights took second place. Bult, McDonnough and Dykhouse were all part of Calvin's starting (five) lineup during the fall and spring seasons during the 2018-19 academic year.

"I am extremely proud of all three golfers for achieving this award," said Calvin women's golf coach Dr. Jerry Bergsma. "They have worked diligently both in the classroom and on the golf course and have helped encourage their teammates as well. We are already looking forward to the upcoming season."

Calvin is scheduled to kick off its 2019-20 season on August 30 when it competes at the Battle at the Border Challenge hosted by Carthage College.
