Two Golfers Earn Postseason Honors

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. -- Two University of Virginia golfers have received postseason honors from the Golf Coaches of Association of America (GCAA) this spring.

James Driscoll was named an honorable mention selection on the GCAA All-America team. A freshman from Chestnut Hill, Mass., he is one of only four freshmen named to the first, second, third or honorable mention All-America teams this spring. He finished the 1996-97 season with a team-best 72.84 stroke average and was also named to the All-Atlantic Coast Conference squad. This is the fourth consecutive season Virginia has had a golfer named to the All-America squad.

Jeremy Julie was named to the GCAA Academic All-American team. To qualify, a player must maintain a minimum of a 3.2 cumulative grade point average through at least his junior year, play at least 75 percent of his team's competition during the year he is nominated, and have a scoring average below 78 in the year he is nominated. Julie, a red-shirt junior from Fenwick, Ontario, played in 12 of 14 tournaments this season and had a 75.91 stroke average. He graduated in May 1997 with a degree in environmental science. Julie is the first Cavalier golfer to be named to the GCAA All-Academic Team.
