NAPERVILLE, Illinois—The Binghamton University golf program had solid reputation in the classroom this past year as four players were recently named to the America Sky conference’s All-Academic Team Thursday. Graduating seniors Stephen Armstrong and Mike Surdey were among the four, alongside junior Ryan Prinzo and freshman Jack Sedgewick. The conference had a league-most 47 honorees this year as all 12 teams had representation.
“It’s great to have our players recognized for their hard work,” head coach Bernie Herceg said. “They have a tremendous work ethic towards their studies and golf and we are very proud of their accomplishments as All-Academic selections.”
Surdey, a senior from here in Binghamton, carried a 3.35 GPA in Finance while competing in eight tournaments this past season. His best performance came at the Cornell Invitational where he finished runner-up and helped guide Binghamton to their third straight crown at the nearby Robert Trent Jones GC.
Armstrong, also a senior, boasted a GPA of 3.425 in Geography. He participated in two events this past spring, with his best finish coming at the George Washington Invitational where he finished tied for 25th.
Sedgewick wrapped up his first collegiate season as a Bearcat with a successful campaign both on the course and in the classroom. Studying Management, Sedgewick compiled a GPA of 3.375 as he proved to be a solid asset for Binghamton, firing a scoring average of 77.3 over a span of five tournaments this past year.
Rounding up the group is junior Ryan Prinzo who makes the All-Academic squad for the third straight season. Prinzo, a Management major, has the team’s highest GPA with an impressive mark of 3.892.
To be eligible for the America Sky All-Academic Team, student-athletes must post a grade point average of 3.2 or better during the academic year.
