CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. – Seniors Eli Barnes and Justin Goodhue have been named captains of the Virginia men’s golf team for the 2003-03 season, head coach Mike Moraghan announced on Thursday.

“Both Eli and Justin have an outstanding work ethic and have improved their golf games in the last four years,” Moraghan said. “They are very encouraging to their teammates, which makes them natural leaders.”

Barnes, a redshirt junior from Bristol, Conn., saw action in three tournaments last season. He tied for 13th at the Radford Invitational with a 146 after firing two rounds of a career-low 73. The economics major also tied for 29th at the Hawaii Fall Classic.

Goodhue, a native of Glastonbury, Conn., started all 12 tourneys last season. Recording five Top 12 finishes, he fired a one-under 71 in the final round to tie for sixth in an even 216 at the Wofford Invitational, helping UVa to the team title. Goodhue also tied for 10th with a two-under 142 at the Birkdale Classic. The sociology major averaged 74.25 in the spring and 74.34 for the year.

Virginia opens its fall season on Monday, Sept. 16 at the Mason Rudolph Collegiate in Nashville, Tenn. The Cavaliers, which advanced to the NCAA East Regional last spring, will participate in four fall tournaments.
