Wallin selected ACC women’s golfer of year

Florida State junior Beatrice Wallin has been voted the 2021 Atlantic Coast Conference Player of the Year and headlines the 15-member All-ACC Women’s Golf Team. 
 
Miami’s Nataliya Guseva was voted the ACC Freshman of the Year, becoming the first Hurricane to earn the honor. 
 
Duke head coach Dan Brooks, who led the Blue Devils to their 22nd ACC title two weeks ago at Sedgefield Country Club in Greensboro, North Carolina, was voted the league’s coach of the year.  It is Brooks’ 16th ACC Coach of the Year honor.
 
Duke led the All-ACC team with four golfers, followed by three from Wake Forest, two from Florida State and Virginia Tech and one each from Clemson, Louisville, Miami and Virginia. The team was selected based on a vote of the league’s head coaches.  As the winner of the 2021 ACC individual stroke play championship, Duke’s Gina Kim was an automatic member of the team.
 
The highest ranked player in the ACC, Wallin is third in the Golfweek individual rankings and ninth in Golfstat’s ranking.  Wallin leads the ACC with a 70.3 stroke average and has finished in the top five in four of six events this spring.  A native of Olofstrop, Sweden, Wallin recently finished second in the ACC Championship individual competition.
