GREENSBORO, N.C. – On Wednesday, the Atlantic Coast Conference released its 2018-19 All-ACC Academic Team for men’s golf, with Notre Dame’s Miguel Delgado and Andrew O’Leary among those listed. Furthermore, Delgado has earned the accolade for the second consecutive year.
Minimum academic requirements for selection to the All-ACC Academic Team are a 3.0 grade point average for the previous semester and a 3.0 cumulative average during one’s academic career for undergraduate students. Athletic achievements during the most recent season are also considered in selecting the All-ACC Academic Team.
Delgado earned his bachelor’s in Finance this past spring, finishing with a 3.2 career GPA. Delgado recently wrapped his best year, qualifying for the NCAA Championship, recording four top-10 finishes and producing a 71.4 strokes per round average – which ranks second all-time.
Delgado finished with a career stroke average of 73.24 (ranks fifth all-time), while counting 99 total rounds towards team scores (ranks sixth all-time). Furthermore, Delgado placed two of his tournament scores on the program’s top-10 list for lowest 54-hole scores.
Next, Andrew O’Leary boasted a 3.5 GPA after his freshman year. O’Leary competed in 10 tournaments for the Irish, recording a 73.17 strokes per round average. The Massachusetts native finished two tournaments under-par, which resulted in one top-10 showing.
Lastly, the ACC Honor Roll, which recognizes all-conference student-athletes with a grade point average of 3.0 for the current academic year, will be released later in July.
