Only juniors and seniors are eligible to be a Cleveland Golf All-America Scholar, meaning all three upperclassmen who played regularly for Tech’s 2005-06 team were so honored. Candidates must have at least a 3.2 cumulative grade-point average and a stroke average under 76.0.
Castro and Larsen, both juniors and All-Americans on the golf course this year, made the All-America Scholar team for the first time. Barbosa, a 2006 graduate from St. Petersburg, Fla., who received his bachelor’s degree in management in May, earned the honor for the second time. All three players made the Atlantic Coast Conference All-Academic golf team this year, and Castro was named a first-team Academic All-America by the College Sports Information Directors of America.
Larsen, from Santa Barbara, Calif., is majoring in management, while Castro, from Alpharetta, Ga., is pursuing a degree in industrial engineering.
