BLACKSBURG, Va. – The Virginia Tech golf program has announced that Ian Hildebrand has signed a national letter of intent to attend Virginia Tech and play golf for the Hokies in Fall 2014.
Hildebrand, from Purcellville, Va., attends Loudon Valley High School, where he is a member of the National Honor Society. An All-State selection in 2011, 2012 and 2013, he won the VHSL Group AAA State Golf Championship in October following rounds of 72-69. This past summer, he represented Virginia in the Virginia/Carolinas Junior Matches, leading the Virginia team in points earned. Hildebrand has numerous high finishes on the AJGA circuit, including a runner-up performance in the 2013 William Penn Championship, and was the youngest qualifier for the 2012 Sun Trust State Open of Virginia, finishing 21st in the tournament. Earlier this year the sports editors of the Northern Virginia Media Services’ weekly newspapers named him the 2013 Northern Virginia Golf Athlete of the Year.
“Ian is accustomed to success academically and athletically and should have an outstanding career at Virginia Tech, both on the course and in the classroom,” Virginia Tech head coach Jay Hardwick said. “He is a fine player who should contribute immediately, but more importantly, he’s a quality young man who will be another outstanding member of the Virginia Tech community when he arrives next fall.”
