Berry Names Sydney Weaver Grad Assistant
FIRST IN PROGRAM HISTORY TO COMPETE FOR NCAA CHAMPIONSHIP
Former Brookstone standout and Berry College All-American golfer Sydney Weaver has been named a grad assistant for the Vikings program.
The announcement comes just a few weeks after Weaver became the first golfer in the history of the program to compete for an NCAA championship.
According to a release from the school Weaver will assist head coach Bryan Farrer in all aspects of the men’s and women’s golf programs as she pursues her master’s degree in business administration.
“I am excited about having Sydney stay on board as a graduate assistant,” Farrer said. “When the search started, my goal was to find an individual with success in the classroom, on the golf course and someone who would be able to understand what Berry has to offer. Sydney fits this role perfectly and it speaks volumes too that she recently won the “Be Berry” award as a student-athlete.”
The former Brookstone Cougar became the first Lady Vikings golfer to land All-America honors since 2009 and just the fifth ever earn that prestigious recognition.
Weaver also took home Southern Athletic Association Golfer of the Year honors following her senior year in addition to a top 10 finish at the NCAA Division III Women’s Golf Championship.
