The ACC announced the All-ACC Academic Men's Golf team Monday, with Georgia Tech's Ollie Schniederjans headlining the list of 25 student-athletes as he received the Rod Myers Award as the ACC's Men's Golf Scholar-Athlete of the Year. The award is named in honor of former Duke head coach Rod Myers.
Duke led all North Carolina schools with three athletes earning spots on the academic squad. They include Alex Matlari, a freshman who is undecided on his major, Motin Yeung, a sophomore public policy major, and Turner Southey-Gordon, a junior management major. It was each player's first time being named to the All-ACC Academic squad and marks the fifth straight year the Blue Devils have led the state in honorees.
North Carolina followed Duke with two golfers in senior Andrew Sajevic and junior Bailey Patrick, both economics majors.
N.C. State and Wake Forest both placed one player on the team, with the Wolfpack represented by sophomore Carter Page, a business administration major. Wake Forest's Davis Womble, who is working towards a major in finance, joined Page in being named to the team for the first time.
Georgia Tech's Bo Andrews and Virginia Tech's Bryce Chalkley were the senior golfers to be named to the squad all four years of their collegiate careers.
To be named to the All-ACC Academic squad, a student-athlete must have a 3.00 grade point average for the previous semester and a 3.00 average throughout his academic career.
