MUSCLE SHOALS, Ala. – Tennessee Tech freshman Bracton Womack was selected to the All-Ohio Valley Conference Newcomer Team Monday evening at the league's annual Awards Dinner as part of the OVC Championships.
Womack became the first Golden Eagle to earn the honor since teammate Matthew Giles earned the nod in 2016. The rookie ranked second on the Tech squad in scoring average during the 2017-18 season. His 74.31 mark heading into the OVC Championships would rank as the best by a Tech freshman in over a decade.
A native of McMinnville, Womack captured two top-10 finishes and a top-five finish on the year, including an All-Tournament honor at the Grover Page Classic. He tallied eight rounds under par during the year, including a season-best 68 at the EKU Raising Canes Intercollegiate.
The freshman participated in a team-high 32 rounds of golf throughout the year, including every single one of the team's 11 events.
