BREVARD COUNTY • MELBOURNE, FLORIDA – Eastern Florida freshmen golfers Kerry Sweeney and Mickey DeMorat have been named to the NJCAA All-District 4 team.
Ten players are recognized as All-District based on their competitive playing record over the course of the year.
The 10 players will receive consideration for Ping All-America status by the Golf Coaches Association of America (GCAA) committee at the NJCAA Division I National Championship in May.
Ten players from each district – 40 total – will be whittled down to three teams of five – first team, second team and honorable mention for the Ping All-Americans for the 2014-2015 school year.
Eastern Florida, ranked No. 1 in the national Golfstat poll and third in the NJCAA Division I poll, is competing today and Tuesday in Alexander City, Alabama for the District 4 title and a 13th consecutive berth in the national tournament.
Also, Eastern Florida head coach Jamie Howell is Coach of the Year for District 4 based on the team’s record for the year. Howell is eligible for national GCAA Coach of the Year honors to be presented at the national championship.
Sweeney hails from Melbourne, Florida and Holy Trinity Episcopal Academy and DeMorat from Merritt Island, Florida and Merritt Island High.
“All-District designation is the product of the players’ year,” said Jamie Howell.
“Sweeney came out on top in our district since he had more wins and top-5 and top-10 finishes than anyone else.”
“DeMorat was a solid fourth as he had multiple top-5s and 10s. Both have made their mark early in their collegiate career as a result of a strong work ethic and a consistent approach to improving their skills,” said Howell
