ATLANTA (May 30) – Georgia Tech’s all-America golfer Bryce Molder (Conway, Ark.) was named to the GTE Academic All-District III Spring At-Large first team, while track standout Malcolm Leason (Wilmington, Del.) earned second-team honors.
Both athletes are competing in the NCAA Championships this week. Molder is the nation’s top ranked collegiate, according to the Golfweek/Sagarin rankings, as he leads the top-ranked Yellow Jackets into the NCAA Golf Championships, which begin Wednesday in Opelika, Ala.
Molder is the two-time Atlantic Coast Conference Player of the Year, the 2000 ACC individual medalist and the winner of the 1998 Jack Nicklaus Trophy as national player of the year. The junior Management major maintains a 3.39 grade point average, and he is now eligible for the national GTE Academic All-America team. Last year, Molder earned second-team GTE Academic All-America honors.
Leason, a senior triple jumper, qualified for the NCAA Outdoor Track and Field Championships, which begin Wednesday in Durham, N.C. He is the reigning ACC champion in the triple jump while also winning the event at the Penn Relays and the Jesse Owens Classic. A civil engineering major, he posts a 3.50 grade point average.
The GTE Spring At-Large team is selected by the College Sports Information Directors of America and encompasses student-athletes in the sports of golf, track and field, lacrosse, tennis, and volleyball.
