snapshot Boston Strong Fourth-year Brittany Altomare became the first player in the history of the UVa women's golf program to win the ACC individual championship. She led the 45-player field after all three rounds April 19-21 and claimed medalist honors with a 4-over-par score of 217. The individual crown was the third tournament victory during the three-time All-American's career. Altomare hails from Shrewsbury, Mass., just west of Boston, which made for a difficult week following the bombings that took place at the Boston Marathon April 15 and the subsequent manhunt that played out on national television during the week. "Honestly, I wanted to be home," said Altomare, who played with a red Boston Red Sox bracelet around her left wrist at the ACC Championships. "It was hard to stay focused, but I've been working on staying in the present moment, and I knew there was really nothing that I could do to prevent whatever was going to happen in Boston," she added. "I just tried to focus on golf while I was on the course and talk to my friends afterward and see how everything was going." In early May, Altomare — who was No. 8 in the Golfweek individual rankings — was the unanimous choice of the league's nine head coaches for ACC Player of the Year, and became just the third Cavalier to be tabbed as a four-time All-ACC honoree. photo by matt riley/courtesy uva
