Stanford junior golfer David Boote was selected to an initial 20-man squad for the Great Britain and Ireland Walker Cup team to face the United States at Royal Lytham & St. Annes in September, as recently announced by The R&A.
Boote, who enjoyed a top-10 finish in last year's European Amateur Championship, is the sole Welshman included on the 20-man squad.
The successful outings with his homeland teammates came after the All-American placed third at the 2014 NCAA Championships.
The 45th Walker Cup match will be played Sept. 12-13 and will see GB&I bidding to win back the historic trophy after the United State's convincing 17-9 victory in the 2013 match at the National Golf Links of America in Southampton, New York.
"We have selected a strong squad of players and they will all know that they are in contention for a place on the team and it is up to them to perform this season," said Nigel Edwards, captain of the GB&I team.
Stanford senior basketball guard Chasson Randle has been named one of 30 candidates for the 2014-15 Senior CLASS Award.
To be eligible for the award, a student-athlete must be classified as an NCAA Division I senior and have notable achievements in four areas of excellence -- community, classroom, character and competition.
An acronym for Celebrating Loyalty and Achievement for Staying in School®, the Senior CLASS Award focuses on the total student-athlete and encourages students to use their platform in athletics to make a positive impact as leaders in their communities.
The 30 candidates will be narrowed to 10 finalists later in the regular season.
A senior tri-captain, Randle leads the Pac-12 in scoring at 20.2 points per game, also averaging 3.0 rebounds while shooting 43.2 percent overall, 39.4 percent from three-point territory and 89.8 percent from the foul line. In addition to reaching double figures in all but one game, Randle has notched 11 20-point games and two 30-point games.
A native of Rock Island, Ill., Randle is 302 points away from passing Todd Lichti (2,336) as Stanford's all-time leading scorer and recently eclipsed the 2,000-point career mark last week against Arizona, becoming only the 15th player in conference history to reach the plateau.
Also this season, Randle has established school records for three-point field goals and minutes played while remaining among the top-five in career field goals made, field goals attempted and steals.
