NEWPORT NEWS, Va.— The Atlantic 10 Conference announced its 2015 Men’s Golf All-Academic team Tuesday, awarding five individuals. The team was selected by a vote of the league’s golf media relations directors.
Three of the honorees, including VCU’s Steffen Harm, were named All-Conference at the end of the season. Harm and his teammates captured the A-10 Championship for the second straight year. The Rams competed in the NCAA Regionals this past weekend, finishing tied for ninth. Harm, a mechanical engineering major, carded a season-low, 5-under par 67 on the final day of the regional to help VCU finish with a season-best 10-under round.
Joining Harm as both an All-Academic and All-Conference honoree was Davidson’s David Sargent, a mathematics major, and Jack Persons, a political science major at George Washington. Persons, who has been a Dean’s list and A-10 Commissioner’s Honor Roll member, finished fourth at the A-10 Championship with a 212 and Sargent tied for fifth with a 215.
St. Bonaventure’s Dan Dunnigan, an accounting and finance major and a former member of the Atlantic 10 Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) was also named to the All-Academic team. Dunnigan finished the A-10 Championship with a 223. Richmond’s David Germann, a business administration major who finished tied for fifth with Sargent at the A-10 Championship, was the final member of the All-Academic team.
