ATLANTA – Mike Barbosa, Roberto Castro, Taylor Hall and Kevin Larsen, four of Georgia Tech’s five starters at last week’s NCAA Championship, made the All-Atlantic Coast Conference Academic Men’s Golf Team announced Friday by the conference office and commissioner John D. Swofford.
Tech, the ACC co-champion this year, and Boston College each had four players selected. Co-champion North Carolina and Virginia Tech each had three honorees.
Castro, a junior Industrial Engineering major from Alpharetta, Ga., and Larsen, a junior in Management from Santa Barbara, Calif., are two of three ACC golfers named to both the All-Academic team and to the all-conference golf team.
Castro has already named to the CoSIDA Academic All-District team, while Barbosa, a red-shirt senior from St. Petersburg, Fla., graduated this spring with a degree in Management. Hall, a Management major, is a freshman from LaGrange, Ga.
To be eligible for consideration, a student-athlete must have earned a 3.00 grade point average for the previous semester and maintained a 3.00 cumulative average during his academic career.
