Providence, RI - Brown senior Blythe Crane, sophomore Anita Sekar and freshman Julia Robinson have been named All-American Scholars in an announcement made by the National Golf Coaches Association.

She place 14th individually at both the Princeton and Yale tournaments.

Sekar, an Economics and Classics concentrator from Edmond, Oklahoma, competed at the Dartmouth/Harvard Triangular competition as well as the Columbia Invitational.
