ATLANTA – Georgia Tech’s Roberto Castro and Cameron Tringale have been named to the 2007 All-Atlantic Coast Conference men’s golf team, the conference office announced Friday. The 12-man team was selected by a vote of the league’s coaches this week.
Castro, a senior from Alpharetta, Ga., who will graduate Saturday with highest honors in Industrial Engineering, made the team for the fourth time. He is the fourth Yellow Jacket player to accomplish that feat, joining David Duval, Matt Kuchar and Bryce Molder, and the 12th ACC golfer to do so. Tringale, a sophomore from Laguna Niguel, Calif., who finished second in the ACC Championship last month, made the team for the second time.
Castro and Tringale currently rank No. 2 and 3 in the ACC in stroke average and have 10 top-10 finishes between them this year.
Tech was one of four teams, along with Clemson, Florida State and Wake Forest, to place two players each on the All-ACC team.
Clemson swept the 2007 ACC individual awards with freshman Kyle Stanley named Player and Freshman of the Year, while Larry Penley was named Coach of the Year for his ninth such honor. Florida State junior Jonas Blixt was an automatic member of the ACC team as the 2007 medalist winner.
FSU teammate Matt Savage, a sophomore, earned All-Conference honors for the first time. Webb Simpson, a junior from Wake Forest, captured his third-straight accolade while fellow teammate Chris McCartin, a junior, earned his first honor on the All-ACC team.
Rounding out the 12-member team are seniors Martin Ureta, a third-straight honoree from North Carolina and NC State’s Jerry Richardson, his first All-ACC team accolade. In addition, Virginia and Duke placed first-time honorees in sophomore Conrad Von Borsig and freshman Adam Long, respectively.
