McCarthy, Wescoe Named All-Region

Yale Junior, Senior Get Awards

 

NEW HAVEN, Conn. - Junior Thomas McCarthy (Tolland, Conn.), recently elected as the men's golf captain for the 2010-11 season, and senior Ben Wescoe (La Jolla, Ca.) have been named to the Division I PING All-Region Team. McCarthy and Wescoe are two of 153 players across six regions to earn all-region honors for 2010.

These honors comes on the heels of a successful season for the Yale men's golf team. The Bulldogs won the MacDonald Cup, the Yale Spring Opener, the Princeton Invitational, and finished second at the Ivy League Championships.
 
McCarthy won two tournaments and placed second in another. He won the MacDonald Cup and the Princeton Invitational, shooting a six-under par and a four-under par, respectively. McCarthy's other top-five finishes include second place at the Caves Valley Spring Intercollegiate, third at the Ivy League Championships, and fourth at the George Washington Invitational, where he shot his lowest round of the year, a six-under 66. He navigated the Bulldogs to success with a team-leading average round score of 73.10.

This prestigious honor comes as no surprise. McCarthy has already been named Ivy League Player of the Year and was selected All-Ivy for the second consecutive year.

Wescoe shot a season-low 66 in the third round en route to a runner-up finish in the MacDonald Cup, while he tied for fifth place in the George Washington Invitational. The 2009-10 Yale captain had a 73.8 scoring average, second best on the team.
