June 20, 2014
GREENSBORO, N.C. - Brittany Marchand, a three-time all-conference player, has been named ACC Women's Golf Scholar-Athlete of the Year. Marchand was also joined by Ana Menendez on the 2014 Women's Golf Academic All-ACC Team.
"It's a great opportunity to cap Britt's and Ana's careers, they have helped us grow this program," head coach Page Marsh said. "They have worked hard and come so far. I believe in supporting and enabling my players to achieve their personal bests."
Marchand, a chemical engineering major, finished her NC State career as a four-time academic all-conference selection, a three-time All-ACC honoree and a two-time honorable mention All-American.
Marchand, a native of Orangeville, Ontario, Canada, capped her decorated collegiate career by posting a 73.5 scoring average this season. She had four top-10 showings among her six top-20 finishes this season.
Menendez, a four-year starter from Mexico City who played every round during her time at NC State, averaged 75.9 this season. She finished her career as a three-time academic All-ACC honoree.
Marchand and Menendez helped the nationally-ranked women's golf team to its best season in 2013-14. The Wolfpack finished tied for 10th at the NCAA Championship, the best finish in school history. NC State also placed third at both the ACC Championship and the NCAA East Regional this season.
The ACC Scholar-Athlete of the Year award was established in September 2007 to be awarded annually to the top junior or senior student-athlete in their respective sports. Candidates for the award must have maintained a 3.0 grade point average for their career as well as a 3.0 for each of the last two semesters.
To be eligible for consideration for the All-ACC Academic team, a student-athlete, regardless of classification, must have earned a 3.00 grade point average for the previous semester and maintained a 3.00 cumulative average during her academic career.
