2008 All-SSC Men's Golf Team Announced
Florida Southern freshman standout Jude Eustaquio has been named the Sunshine State Conference Golfer and Freshman of the Year, while Lynn’s Chris Greenwood was selected SSC Coach of the Year, it was announced Wednesday by Commissioner Michael J. Marcil.
Voting for the All-SSC men’s golf team was conducted among the league’s head men’s golf coaches and sports information directors.
Joining Eustaquio on the all-conference first team were Lynn’s Scott Aydelotte and Nova Southeastern’s Greg O’Mahony, Constantin Schwierz, and Byron White.
For the first time, the All-SSC men’s golf team was expanded to include a second team squad. Earning second-team honors were Barry’s Victor Billskoog and Carlos Velez, Lynn’s Federico Celano and Jordan Holley, and Florida Southern’s Danny Evelyn.
Earning honorable mention were Lynn’s Patricio Salem and Florida Southern’s Matt Stauch.
A native of Lake Worth, Fla., Eustaquio was sensational in his debut season at Florida Southern, notching four top-5 finishes and seven top-10 performances. He was the Mocs’ top performer in six of nine tournaments played.
Eustaquio’s best finish came at the Southeastern Collegiate, where he earned medalist honors. He tied for second place at the SSC Championships, carding a score of 214 to join a three-golfer playoff for medalist honors, which was ultimately won by NSU’s O’Mahony.
Additionally, Eustaquio chalked top-five outings at the Bobcat Invitational and the Matlock Invitational. He concluded the regular-season with a 72.03 stroke average, tops among SSC men’s golfers.
In just his second season at Lynn, Greenwood led the Fighting Knights to tournament victories at the Spartan Invitational, Panther Invitational, and Southern California Invitational. His squad finished in the top five in eight of 11 events played this year. LU is currently ranked No. 13 in the latest Golf World Division II Men’s Golf Rankings and holds down the No. 6 ranking in the latest NCAA Division II South Region Rankings.
