James Driscoll Named to All-ACC Golf Squad
GREENSBORO, N.C. -- University of Virginia golfer James Driscoll has been named to the 11-man All-Atlantic Coast Conference Men's Golf Team in voting by the league's nine head coaches.
Driscoll, a native of Chestnut Hill, Mass., is the third player in school history named All-ACC as a freshman.
He has five top-10 finishes in 11 tournaments this season leads the team with a 72.88 stroke average. His 70.66 average in the fall is the lowest fall average in school history. He is ranked 50th nationally in the Rolex Collegiate Golf Rankings.
Driscoll's best finish this spring is a third-place showing at the ACC Tournament, the best finish ever by a Virginia freshman in the tournament.
Virginia, ranked 17th in the current Rolex Collegiate Rankings, is one of 23 teams that will play in the upcoming NCAA East Region Tournament at the Cascades Golf Course at The Homestead in Hot Springs, Va., on May 15-17.
Clemson's Richard Coughlan and N.C. State's Tim Clark were named the league's Co-Players of the Year. Georgia Tech's Matt Kuchar was named the ACC Rookie of the Year, while Larry Penley of Clemson was tabbed the ACC Coach of the Year.
