ACC Performers of the Week (April 2): Virginia Golf, Lacrosse, Rowing

ACC Performer of the Week

Every week, the ACC recognizes the top student-athletes of each sport for their performance the previous week. Just about every week, at least one or two -- and sometimes more -- Virginia Cavaliers earn these honors. In keeping true to our dedication of shining the spotlight on both revenue and Olympic sports, Streaking the Lawn will endeavor to update you weekly. The following are Virginia's ACC Performers of the Week for the week beginning April 2, and the description is provided by the conference's media release.

Ben Kohles, Men's Golf

Ben Kohle's was named ACC Co-Golfer of the Month of March. Kohles, a senior from Cary, N.C., became Virginia's all-time wins leader (seven) with two victories this spring. He took medalist honors at both the Cleveland Golf Palmetto Intercollegiate, played March 5-6 in Aiken, S.C., and the Schenkel Invitational, played March 16-18 in Statesboro, Ga. Kohles set a Virginia tournament scoring record and record for score in relation to par with an 18-under 198 to win the Schenkel. He opened the spring season with a victory at The Cleveland Golf Palmetto (208, -2) and then had a second-place effort at the General Hackler, played March 11-12 in Georgetown, S.C.

Steele Stanwick, Men's Lacrosse

Stanwick tied a career high with eight points to lead Virginia to a conference win at No. 9 Maryland. With the Cavaliers down two goals late in the third quarter, Stanwick jumpstarted a 7-1 Virginia run that spelled the difference. The Baltimore, Md., native tallied three goals and two assists during the run, including what proved to the game-winning goal. He also picked up a team-high five ground balls, including crucial ones late in the game.

First Varsity Four, Rowing

Virginia's First Varsity Four crew which captured the Karen Plumleigh Cortney Cup, which goes to the winner of the Women's Collegiate Varsity Four title in the San Diego Crew Classic, was named the Atlantic Coast Conference Crew of the Week Wednesday by the ACC.

The 1V4+ crew, consisting of junior coxswain Molly Frear (Wilton, Conn.), senior Ruth Retzinger (Cincinnati, Ohio), sophomore Kaity McCullough (Campbell, Calif.), sophomore Elle Murray (Tampa, Fla.) and freshman Chandler Lally (Bryn Mawr, Pa.), recorded a time of 7:58.12, in defeating 14th-ranked Washington State (8:02.23), UCLA (8:05.35), Tennessee (8:08.98), 6th-ranked Southern California (8:11.79) and 8th-ranked Washington (8:17.17) in the Grand Final last Sunday.

On Saturday, the same crew captured its semifinal heat in a time of 7:37.64, besting UCLA, British Columbia, Clemson, Southern Cal "B", Oklahoma and San Diego State to reach the Grand Finals.

The win by the Cavaliers 1V4+ was one of three strong performances by Virginia on Sunday as its First Varsity Eight crew finished second to Southern California by less than three seconds, and its Second Varsity Eight finished third, just behind UCLA and Washington.

Virginia has been ranked No. 1 nationally in each of the first three CRCA polls of the year, marking their 48th consecutive appearance in the national polls and their 7th No. 1 ranking.

Virginia will next be in action this April 14-15 against 15th-ranked Michigan State, 16th-rated Cornell, 18th-ranked Notre Dame and Northeastern in dual meets on Lake Monticello just outside of Charlottesville, Va.
