May 1, 2003
Walnut Creek, CA - Washington junior All-American golfer Brock Mackenzie (Yakima) was named a first-team selection to the All-Pac-10 Conference team today. Mackenzie becomes the first Husky player to repeat as a first-team selection. He earned the same honor last year after being a second-team pick as a freshman. Mackenzie placed eighth at this year's Pac-10 Championships. It marked the third consecutive season he has registered a top-10 finish at the event.
Washington senior Derek Berg (Duvall), who won his first tournament this season, was an honorable mention selection.
Arizona's Ricky Barnes was named Pac-10 Golfer of the Year, while Alejandro Canizares of Arizona State and Michael Wilson of California shared Freshman of the Year honors. UCLA's O.D. Vincent was named Pac-10 Coach of the Year. Vincent played at Washington and won the Pac-10 title in 1988 while leading the Huskies to the team title. He was Washington's head coach from 1996-2001 and received co-Pac-10 Coach of the Year honors in 1999. This year he directed UCLA to its first Pac-10 championship since 1985.
