Saginaw Valley State University Athletics will be releasing a series of student-athlete spotlights, which will feature some of our Cardinal senior student-athletes from the 2019-20 academic year. Stay tuned to www.svsucardinals.com over the next few weeks to get to know our SVSU seniors a bit more.
Next up in our series is Women's Golf student-athlete Alexa Marston. Alexa is a native of Jackson, Michigan and she has been a member of the team since the program was started in the 2016-17 season. She was a 2019 All-GLIAC honoree and was named the team's MVP that season as well. She is a four-time Academic All-American as well and has played in 34 tournaments in her Cardinal career.
Alexa's favorite memory while competing for Saginaw Valley was the last hole on this past spring break trip, where the teams surrounded the green and cheered for the seniors. Little did she know that it would be her last hole ever and it was a pretty special way to remember the last four years.
Marston is set to graduate in August 2020 with a bachelor's degree in exercise science. She has a minor in psychology as well.
Alexa Marston on her time spent competing for SVSU...
"Reflecting on my career feels like an unfinished book. However, all I can say is thank you to Coach Vogl, SVSU Athletics and all of my teammates. This has been the best ride of my life and I definitely wouldn't be who I am without calling myself a student-athlete for the last four years!"
SVSU Women's Golf Head Coach Joe Vogl on Alexa Marston...
"Lexi was another one of our first recruits to the Women's Golf Team four years ago. In fact, she was an anchor as a four year starter who day in and day out, was our most consistent player we've had. Not long off the tee, but very competitive from there on in. With a high GPA, she is no surprise to be a four time Academic All-American. A great personality and she will be an exceptional ambassador for SVSU!"
