Norman, Okla. - All five members of the Georgia Tech lineup that will compete in the NCAA Championship beginning Friday have been named to the 2014 All-East Region team Thursday by the Golf Coaches Association of America.
Oklahoma State, ranked No. 2 in Golfstat, is the only other team to have five of its players earn all-region honors. Top-ranked Alabama, No. 6 Georgia, No. 8 Washington and No. 19 Virginia each have four. A total of 157 players across six regions - Northeast, East, Southeast, Midwest, Central and West - earned all-region honors for 2014. Ollie Schniederjans, the Atlantic Coast Conference Player of the Year and a finalist for the Ben Hogan Award, made the team for the third time along with Anders Albertson, an All-ACC performer this year for the third time, and senior Bo Andrews. Senior Richard Werenski made the team for the second time in his career, while Seth Reeves, an All-ACC selection this year as a senior, made the team for the first time. All five players are ranked among the top 130 in the nation.
The quintet has led Tech to six tournament victories this year, the most for a Yellow Jackets' team since the 2001-02 squad won set the program record with seven wins.
