GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Virginia Tech golfer Drew Weaver has been named to the 2009 All-Atlantic Coast Conference men’s golf team, as selected by the league’s head coaches.
A senior from High Point, N.C., Weaver leads the Hokies with a 71.45 stroke average this season. He also leads the team with a 71.50 stroke average in final rounds of tournaments and he has scored par or better in 19 of his 29 rounds this season, also a team-high. He currently is second in career scoring average at Virginia Tech at 73.14.
“Drew has worked extremely hard and played at a consistently high level all season and is very deserving of this honor,” head coach Jay Hardwick said. “As an All-America Scholar and two-time All-ACC Academic Team selection as well, Drew epitomizes the term ‘student-athlete’ and is a tremendous example for our other players.”
Weaver becomes the second Hokie ever to be named All-ACC in golf, following Jurrian van der Vaart in 2008. He tied for fifth in the 2009 ACC Men’s Golf Championship and finished in the top 10 in seven of the team’s 10 events this season. He has been the Hokies’ low scorer in seven of the team’s 10 tournaments as a senior.
Weaver is also one of the top student-athletes at Virginia Tech. He is a two-time member of the All-ACC Academic men’s golf team and the ACC Academic Honor Roll and was a 2008 GCAA Cleveland Golf All-America Scholar. He was recently named the male recepient of the 2009 Virginia Tech’s ACC Scholar Athlete of the Year Award.
Weaver is one of 12 members of the all-conference team. Matt Hill of NC State was named the ACC Player of the Year, Brooks Koepka of Florida State was named the ACC Freshman of the Year and Bruce Heppler of Georgia Tech was named the ACC Coach of the Year.
