Greensboro, N.C. – Georgia Tech sophomores Anders Albertson and Ollie Schniederjans were both named to the 2013 All-Atlantic Coast Conference Men’s Golf team Tuesday, as selected by the league’s 11 coaches.
Tech is one of three teams to have multiple representatives on the team. Albertson, who won the ACC Championship individual title with a tournament-record score, made the team for the second time. Schniederjans earned the honor for the first time. The sophomore duo ranks fourth and sixth in the ACC in stroke average.
Albertson, from Woodstock, Ga., shot 66-67-68 to win the ACC Championship with a tournament-record score of 201 (-15), and was Tech’s high finisher in last week’s NCAA Tallahassee Regional with a 7-under-par score of 209. He has a team-best stroke average of 71.2, and seven of his last 10 rounds have been in the 60s. Albertson has five top-10 finishes this year, including a tie for fourth at the Linger Longer Invitational and a tie for sixth at the Gary Koch Invitational. He is ranked 27th in the Golfweek/Sagarin Index while facing the seventh-toughest schedule in the nation .
Schniederjans, from Powder Springs, Ga., is second on the team with a 71.6 stroke average, and has eight top-20 finishes this year and five top-10s. He tied for runner-up honors at the Puerto Rico Classic, his best of the year and tied for 10th place at the ACC Championship. Rated 31st nationally in the Golfweek/Sagarin Index, Schniederjans finished fifth at the Brickyard Collegiate in the fall, tied for 10th at the Linger Longer Invitational and tied for 19th at last weekend’s NCAA Tallahassee Regional.
NC State junior Albin Choi was named the ACC Player of the Year and Florida State’s Hank Lebioda was selected ACC Freshman of the Year. Duke’s Jamie Green garnered ACC Coach of the Year honors.
Eight of the 11 ACC men’s golf programs are represented on this year’s All-ACC team. Florida State led the way with three players selected to the All-ACC squad, including sophomore Daniel Berger, the runner-up in the balloting for ACC Player of the Year, senior Chase Seiffert and freshman Hank Lebioda.
Georgia Tech and Virginia Tech each had two players tabbed for the All-ACC team, with Duke, Maryland, NC State, Virginia and Wake Forest each having one player chosen.
