Moyers signs to play golf for Hokies
Virginian to join team in Fall 2009

BLACKSBURG, Va. - The Virginia Tech golf program has announced that Mikey Moyers has signed a national letter of intent to attend Virginia Tech and play golf for the Hokies in Fall 2009.

Moyers, from Ruckersville, Virginia, attends William Monroe High School. Earlier this year, he won his second consecutive Virginia Class AA High School Championship. He was the 2007 Virginia State Golf Association Co-Junior Player of the Year and the 2007 and 2008 VSGA Junior Match Play Champion. He is a three-time selection to represent Virginia in the Virginia/Carolina Junior Matches.

In the fall of 2008, he set the all-time VHSL Class AA 36-hole scoring record at the state championship, with rounds of 65 and 62 for a total of 127 at Old Trail Golf Club in Crozet, Va. His margin of victory (18 shots) and score in relation to par (15-under par) were also records for the state high school tournament, and his final round 62 is the lowest round in the modern history of the event.

“His record setting victory last month at the state high school championship was truly remarkable, and illustrates Mikey’s ability to compete at the highest level,” Virginia Tech head coach Jay Hardwick said. “We expect him to contribute to our team’s success right away.”
