PRINCETON, N.J. -- After a vote by the Ancient Eight head coaches, Penn's Austin Powell (Jupiter, Fla.) and Bob Heintz were named Player and Coach of the Year, and Harvard's Greg Royston (Durban, South Africa) was voted Rookie of the year.
Powell has had a terrific senior campaign and was a key part of the Quakers surge to comeback and win the 2015 Ivy League Championship last weekend. The senior shot 67 on Sunday and finished second overall with a three-day score of 213 (-3) at Saucon Valley. Powell has a 73.4 stroke average over 22 tournament rounds this year, while posting six top-five finishes in 10 events
Royston claimed five top-20 finishes during his freshman campaign, including tying for seventh at the Ivy League Championship. Royston shot a 79-74-72- -225 in his first Ancient Eight championship, and was key to the Crimson taking third overall.
Heinz led Penn through a terrific season, culminating in his first-ever Ivy League title. In his third year, Heinz has guided the Quakers to 10 top-10 finishes, including the City Six title in Philadelphia. Penn was the first team in Ivy League history to win the League title a year after finishing in eighth place.
The All-Ivy teams are based on the results from the Ivy League Men's Golf Championship. The top five finishers (including ties) are recognized as first-team All-Ivy and the next five finishers (including ties) are recognized as second-team All-Ivy.
