Altomare Earns All-ACC Golf Honors for Third Time
GREENSBORO, NC – Junior Brittany Altomare (Shrewsbury, Mass.) has been named to the All-Atlantic Coast Conference women’s golf team. It marks the third consecutive year she has received all-conference honors.
Altomare leads the Cavaliers with a 73.69 stroke average and led or shared the team lead in scoring in seven of nine tournaments this year. She had four top-10 outings this season, topped off by a third-place finish at the Mason Rudolph/Fall Preview in September.
