June 16, 2010
AUSTIN, Texas -- Golfweek has selected Texas freshman Cody Gribble, sophomore Dylan Frittelli and junior Bobby Hudson to its NCAA Division I Men's All-America team, the publication announced Wednesday.
Golfweek tabbed Gribble as a second-team All-American while selecting Frittelli to the third team. Hudson earned an honorable mention All-America selection.
Gribble (Dallas, Texas), selected as a third-team All-American last week by the GCAA (Golf Coaches Association of America), was the only freshman nationwide to be selected to either the first or second team. A GCAA All-Freshmen Team selection, Gribble posted six top-five finishes during his freshman campaign. He opened his first semester of college golf last fall by tying for third at the Olympia Fields Invitational, taking second at the Jerry Pate National Intercollegiate and placing third at the UTSA Lone Star Invitational.
Gribble took second at the Puerto Rico Classic in February and followed that effort by joining Frittelli in a tie for fifth at the Southern Highlands Collegiate Masters. Fueled by an opening-round 64, Gribble placed third at the NCAA East Regional Championship last month. He added an additional top-10 finish at the Aggie Invitational, where he tied for eighth place.
Frittelli (Pretoria, South Africa), who was selected as a GCAA third-team All-American last week, registered eight top-10 finishes this season, including six top-five showings. The 2010 Big 12 Conference Player of the Year and two-time NCAA Championships participant won his second college event in March when he captured the National Invitational Tournament in Tucson, Ariz.
Frittelli added additional top-five finishes at the Jerry Pate National Intercollegiate (T-4th), the UTSA Lone Star Invitational (2nd), the Puerto Rico Classic (T-4th) and the Southern Highlands Collegiate Masters (T-5th). He led the Horns with a 71.82 stroke average.
Hudson (Memphis, Tenn.), who also earned honorable mention All-America honors from the GCAA last week, landed five top-10 finishes during his junior season, including three top-five showings. Hudson registered his second college win in February when he claimed the Mauna Lani Invitational. He went on to place fourth at the National Invitational Tournament in March and tie for third at the Big 12 Championship in April.
Hudson added additional top-10 finishes at the Morris Williams Intercollegiate, where he tied for eighth place, and the Puerto Rico Classic, where he tied for seventh place. On Sunday, Hudson wrapped up his fourth tournament victory as a Longhorn when he captured the Sunnehanna Amateur Championship in Johnstown, Pa.
