Marchand, James Collect All-ACC Honors
May 6, 2014
The two standout players from Canada captured all-conference honors for the third consecutive season.
"The honors and achievements they've had are remarkable," head coach Page Marsh said. "Their consistency from year-to-year-to-year shows their dedication and their work ethic.
"But from top to bottom, it's really been all eight (players on the team) this year to push to help us have the culture that we have."
Marchand, a senior from Orangeville, Ontario, tied for fifth at the ACC Women's Golf Championship this season. She led NC State at the conference tourney with a 54-hole score of 220 (+7). She is the school's all-time leader with three career tournament wins and is also a four-time Academic All-ACC honoree.
James, a junior from Bath, Ontario, led NC State with a 73.2 scoring average. She placed in the top 20 in eight of NC State's nine tournaments this year and she led the Wolfpack with eight rounds of par or better. James placed 12th at the league tournament, carding a total of 222 (+9).
Marchand and James were two of 12 players to be named All-ACC. Duke's Celine Boutier was named ACC Women's Golf Player of the Year. NC State joined Duke, Florida State and Clemson as the only schools to have multiple All-ACC performers.
NC State will play in the NCAA East Regional this weekend at Southwood Golf Club in Tallahassee, Fla. The Wolfpack will be in action May 8-10 in the regional, which is hosted by Florida State. The top eight teams in the 24-team field advance to the NCAA Women's Golf Championship May 20-23 in Tulsa, Okla.
