Franklin, Tenn. – Virginia women’s golfers Brittany Altomare (Shrewsbury, Mass.) and Portland Rosen (Sugarland, Texas) have been named All-Americans by the National Golf Coaches Association. Altomare was a second-team selection while Rosen received honorable mention accolades thanks to a top-10 finish at the NCAA Championships.

Altomare, a junior, earned All-America honors for the third time in her career. She was a second-team All-American by the NGCA last season and an honorable mention pick following her freshman year.

Altomare was 29th at the NCAA Championships, helping UVa to its second consecutive fourth-place finish. This season she led Virginia with a 73.61 stroke average. She topped UVa in scoring in eight of 11 tournaments and earned All-ACC honors for the third consecutive season.

She joins former Cavaliers Calle Nielson and Leah Wigger as the only players in UVa history to earn All-America honors three years in a row.

The NGCA also announced Altomare was selected to the All-Central Region team.

Rosen, a sophomore, tied for eighth at the NCAA Championship. She became the third Cavalier to post a top-10 finish at the NCAAs. She led the field after the first round by shooting a tournament-best 6-under 66, which set the Virginia single-round scoring record.
