ATHENS, Ga. --- Senior golfers Michael Cromie and Joey Garber of Georgia were named First-Team All-Southeastern Conference on Thursday in voting by the league's coaches.

Sophomore Lee McCoy earned Second-Team All-SEC honors, while freshman Greyson Sigg was chosen for the SEC All-Freshman Team.

Cromie, a native of Cary, N.C., has appeared in every tournament this season and has a scoring average of 71.93. He was low medalist at the Linger Longer Invitational, setting career bests for round (5-under) and tournament (9-under). Cromie has six top-10s this season after entering his senior season with just one.

Garber, a native of Petoskey, Mich., leads the Bulldogs and is third in the SEC with a 70.46 scoring average. He won the The Invitational at The Ocean Course, highlighted by a 6-under 66 that set his personal best for a round and matched the tournament record. Following that event, he earned National Player of the Week honors by Golfweek. Garber is enjoying one of the best seasons in Georgia history with six top-10s and eight top-20s in nine stroke-play events.

McCoy, a native of Clarkesville, Ga., ranks second on the team with a scoring average of 71.59. He has appeared in every event this year. McCoy won the Met Intercollegiate for his first collegiate victory, setting his career best and the tournament record for a round with an opening 7-under. He has three additional top-5 finishes and a total of seven top-20s.

Sigg, a native of Augusta, Ga., has appeared in eight stroke-play tournaments this year, including all five this spring. He holds a 73.13 scoring average and has recorded three top-10s, led by sixth-place efforts in the Puerto Rico Classic and the Met Intercollegiate. In Puerto Rico, he fired a final-round 4-under 68 to establish his career-best loop.



The Bulldogs will play next Thursday through Saturday in the San Antonio Regional at Briggs Ranch Golf Club. The top five teams from each of the six national regionals will make up the field for the NCAA Championship May 23-28 at Prairie Dunes Country Club in Hutchinson, Kansas.
