Chris Woeste led the Flyers with 26 rounds played, served as a team captain and has a 3.9 cumulative grade point average.
– University of Dayton junior Chris Woeste joined a select club as he was named to the 2010 Atlantic 10 Men’s Golf All-Academic Team.
Woeste becomes just the eighth UD golfer to earn a spot on the conference’s all-academic team. Rob Chappell was selected in 2009 followed by Adam Meyers in 2004, A.J. Quinter in 2003, Matt Pagnatto in 1999 and 2000, Robert Hayes and Jeremy Schmidt in 1997 and Dwayne Kotera in 1996.
“He works very hard at that and very proud of his academics,” UD Head Coach Gip Hoagland said. “Chris is one of those kids who is very well rounded and gives 100 percent of everything.”
The Centerville, Ohio native possesses a 3.9 cumulative grade point average majoring in pre-physical therapy. This past semester he earned a perfect 4.0.
Woeste also serves as a team captain with classmate Jeff Hodapp and was one of three returning Flyers at the start of the 2009-10 season.
“Chris realizes the importance of his grades,” Hoagland said. “He is an extremely competitive kid and he is involved a lot. It’s another example of the type of kid we have on our team."
During the 2009-10 campaign, Woeste placed in a tie for 17th at the 2010 Atlantic 10 Men’s Golf Championship. He led the team in total rounds played (26) and ranked third on the Flyers with a 75.7 stroke average.
The Flyer men’s golf program prides itself on strong academic and athletic performance. This semester five UD golfers made it to the Dean’s List and Woeste was one of three Flyers to have a 4.0.
The unprecedented competitive success of UD's student-athletes on the field of play is matching similar academic success. In fact, the Flyers have never performed better in the classroom.
The student-athletes at UD have a combined cumulative grade point average of 3.212. During the fall 2009 semester, 65 percent of UD student-athletes (253 out of 387) earned a GPA above a 3.0.
The voting was conducted among the conference's sports information directors. To be eligible, a student-athlete must have a minimum 3.0 grade point average and be an important part of the team.
