PRINCESS ANNE — On Wednesday, June 23, former University of Maryland Eastern Shore men’s golfer Michael Veverka was named to Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference’s All-Time team for men’s golf. The team was composed of 50 student-athletes from the conference’s member schools over the past 50 years.
Veverka competed for the Hawks from 2010-14. During his senior year, the Brunswick, Maryland native made the 2014 MEAC All-Tournament team. Also during that season, he shot a 69 at the Myrtle Beach Invitational. That score is tied for MEAC’s fifth-lowest round all-time. He was named the Hawks’ MVP during his sophomore year and the squad’s Coach’s Award winner as a senior.
More than 200 total votes were cast, with fans, media representatives, institution sports information contacts and others taking part. In all, 50 individuals, including one national champion and one two-time Hall of Famer, are recognized.
To be considered on the ballot, student-athletes must have been named to the MEAC All-Tournament Team, MEAC Championship Outstanding Performer, finish top five in the PGA National Minority (now PGA WORKS) Championship or be inducted into the MEAC Hall of Fame, Black College Hall of Fame or PGA National Minority Hall of Fame.
