Stinnett, Hollerbach Named All-BIG EAST
Hokie seniors place one-two in conference tournament
April 26, 2004 South Bend, Ind. -- Virginia Tech golfers Ryan Stinnett and Matt Hollerbach have been named All-BIG EAST Conference following their performances in the 2004 BIG EAST Conference Golf Championship April 24-25 in South Bend, Ind. Stinnett, a senior from Amherst, Va., won medalist honors at the event, shooting a three-round total of two-under-par 208. The 208 total sets a new BIG EAST Conference mark for lowest score in a 54-hole championship tournament. His 67 in round two was the lowest score of the tournament and his 71 in the final round was the low score on Sunday. With Stinnett's victory, the Hokies become the first school to win four straight BIG EAST medalist titles with four different players and only the second team to win four straight individual titles. Hollerbach, a redshirt senior from Tulsa, Okla., finished second in this year's event behind Stinnett. His three-round total of 217 is the ninth-best 54-hole total in BIG EAST history. Virginia Tech finished second to host Notre Dame in the 2004 BIG EAST Golf Championship, played at the Warren Golf Course on the campus of Notre Dame.
