MILLEDGEVILLE, Ga. – The No. 16 Georgia College golf team and head coach Jimmy Wilson have announced the addition of three players to its fall 2013 roster. Harrison Stewart (Roswell, Ga.), Conner Albright (Macon, Ga.) and David Hemann (Evans, Ga.) all enter the upcoming season as freshmen for the Bobcats.
A four-year honor roll student at Roswell High School, Stewart posted a 73.08 scoring average in 13 competitive rounds last summer. He recently pulled in medalist honors at the PBE Ringgold AJGA Qualifier with a 67, third place in the SJGT Heath Slocum Invitational at Hawks Ridge shooting 70-74 and a ninth place finish at the Beth Daniel Junior Azalea with a 73-69.
Stewart plans to major in business management. He chose Georgia College because of great academics and the excellent golf program.
Albright sported an impressive 3.8 GPA at First Presbyterian Day School, leaving him with honor graduate distinction. The former FPD golfer helped his high school team to three-straight region titles. During his 2012 junior circuit, Albright finished second in the Jr. PGA Wilmington Island and SJGT Junior Peach Blossom tournaments.
The Macon also starred in football for FPD, being named All-Middle Georgia Honorable Mention, All-State Second Team and the Macon Touchdown Club Middle Georgia Special Teams Player of the Year as a kicker.
Albright plans to major in business management. He selected Georgia College for its excellent golf program, beautiful campus, academic environment and for being the perfect distance from his Macon home.
A Greenbrier High School graduate, Hemann's recent golf highlights include a second place finish at the AJGA's prestigious E-Z-GO Vaughn Taylor Championship with rounds of 71-76-68. He also placed third after firing 76-72 in the SJGT's West Lake Junior Classic last summer. In addition to dominating August Area junior golf events, Hemann shot 71-73 to win the 2011 John's Creek Men's Club Championship.
Hemann chose Georgia College because the university molds a well-rounded individual with its liberal arts base. Also, Hemann liked how consistently competitive Bobcat golf is on national level.
These three golfers will be added to a strong roster for Bobcat golf, one that saw Georgia College take top-five finishes in three different tournaments during 2012-13, while also putting two on the All-Peach Belt Conference (PBC) teams in outgoing seniors Taylor Smith and Patrick Garrett. Bobcat golf qualified for NCAA postseason play for the 16th straight season.
