NORMAN, Okla. – The Golf Coaches Association of America (GCAA) announced at the conclusion of the NCAA Division III Men's Golf Championship that Washington and Lee junior Brian Peccie (Norfolk, Va. / Norfolk Academy) has been selected to the PING Division III First Team All-America squad.

Peccie is one of eight Division III golfers named to the All-America First Team, marking the second straight year that he has earned the honor.

A finalist for the 2019 Jack Nicklaus Division III National Player of the Year Award, Peccie is a GCAA All-America Scholar and First Team All-South Region selection.  He earned First Team All-ODAC honors for the third time in his career, tying for first in the ODAC Championship this spring.

Peccie recently completed his junior campaign by finishing in a tie for 28th overall at the 2019 NCAA Division III Championship with a score of 75-73-79-74—301 (+13).  He has played the NCAA Championship three times, finishing in a tie for 42nd as a first-year in 2017 and winning the individual championship last year as a sophomore.

Peccie played 25 rounds during the 2018-19 campaign, posting a program-record 72.48 scoring average.  He broke the former mark of 72.55 that he had set a year ago.

For his career, Peccie has played 62 rounds and he claims a 73.4 stroke average.  That is also on pace to break the W&L scoring record held by Nathaniel James '08, '11L.  James averaged 73.80 across his career.

As a team, the Generals placed in a tie for 19th-place at the NCAA Championship, missing the cut by just two strokes.  W&L won the ODAC title to earn an automatic bid to NCAA's.
