    Moyers, Vincent named All-ACC
    Duo among 12 golfers honored

    GREENSBORO, N.C. – Virginia Tech golfers Mikey Moyers and Scott Vincent have been named to the 2013 Men’s Golf All-Conference team as selected by the league’s 11 head coaches. This is the first All-ACC selection for each player.

    Moyers, a senior from Stanardsville, Va., was second on the team in scoring average and in crunch time average this season. He was 11th in the ACC in scoring average this season. Moyers’ top finish of the season was at the 60th Annual ACC Men’s Golf Championship, where he finished tied for second, while leading the Hokies to a tie for second place overall. Moyers is a four-year starter for the Hokies and competed in four consecutive NCAA Championships.

    Vincent, a sophomore from Harare, Zimbabwe, led the Hokies in scoring average and crunch time scoring this season. He played 11 of the team’s 12 events this season, missing on the Brickyard Collegiate Golf Championship in the fall, when he represented his native Zimbabwe in the World Team Amateur Championship in Turkey. Vincent was seventh in the ACC in scoring average and finished sixth at the ACC Championship. His best finishes of the season were third place at both the Marshall Invitational and the Mission Inn Spring Spectacular.

    NC State junior Albin Choi was named the ACC Player of the Year and Florida State’s Hank Lebioda was selected ACC Freshman of the Year. Duke’s Jamie Green garnered ACC Coach of the Year honors. The Hokies and Georgia Tech each had two players tabbed for the All-ACC team, with Duke, Maryland, NC State, Virginia and Wake Forest each having one player chosen.

    This is the first time since Virginia Tech joined the ACC that two Hokies have earned the award in the same season. Moyers and Vincent are the third and fourth Hokies to earn All-ACC honors.
