UVa Men's Golf Team Recognized for Strong Academic Showing
Charlottesville, VA – The Virginia men’s golf team has been recognized by the Golf Coaches Association of America for having one of the nation’s best grade point averages. The Cavaliers received the honor by sporting a team GPA higher than 3.0.
Virginia was one of nine teams that advanced to the 2010 NCAA Championships that posted a team GPA of 3.0 or higher.
“It is nice to see the players recognized for the work they do in the classroom in addition to their performances on the golf course,” said UVa coach Bowen Sargent. “The sport puts a lot of demands on their time and our guys take great pride in managing that without sacrificing their academic goals.”
Earlier this summer seven members of the Cavalier men’s golf team earned ACC Academic Honor Roll honors for registering a grade point average of 3.00 or better for the full academic year.
Virginia finished 11th at the 2010 NCAA Championships and returns four of the five players who made up the Cavaliers’ tournament lineup.
