Weaver named to PING All-America third team
Recent Virginia Tech grad also named to all-region team

NORMAN, Okla. -- Virginia Tech senior Drew Weaver has been named to the PING All-America third team, as selected by the Golf Coaches Association of America. He has also been named to the 2009 PING All-East Region team.

The recent graduate from High Point, N.C., was a first team All-Atlantic Coast Conference selection as a senior in 2009. He led the Hokies in scoring average and “Crunch Time” scoring average. He finished in the top 20 in nine of the team’s 11 events, including a team-high four top five finishes. The 2007 British Amateur Champion finished fifth at the 2009 ACC Golf Championship and 12th at the NCAA Southwest Regional in Austin, Texas.

“We are extremely proud of Drew and the career that he has had at Virginia Tech,” head coach Jay Hardwick said. “He not only has been a success on the course, but also in the classroom, evidenced by his selection last year as a Cleveland Golf All-America Scholar for Division I.”

Weaver completed his career second in career scoring average at Virginia Tech. He was named the 2009 Virginia Tech ACC Male Scholar-Athlete of the Year. He is one of four ACC players to be named to one of the All-America teams by the GCAA this year.

This is the second consecutive season that a Hokie has been named third team All-America by the GCAA. In 2008 Jurrian van der Vaart earned the honor. This is the fifth time that a Hokie has been named to a GCAA All-America team since 2002 and Weaver is the fourth different Hokie to garner such an award.
