Brady Family Becomes Vanderbilt's First Mother-Daughter All-Americans
Vanderbilt's Jacqui Concolino and Chris Brady have been named Golfweek All-Americans the magazine announced Tuesday.
Concolino earned second-team accolades while Brady took third-team recognition. The honors were based on ratings compiled by the magazine. Concolino finished the season ranked 12th nationally while Brady was listed at No. 28.
The award also makes the Brady family the first mother-daughter All-Americans in Vanderbilt history. Chris' mother, Peggy Harmon Brady, became Vanderbilt's first All-American for women's golf when she earned the award twice in 1970 and 1971 from the Association for Intercollegiate Athletics for Women (AIAW).
It also marks the second All-America honor for Concolino this season. The rising sophomore from Orlando, Fla., was named National Golf Coaches Association Second Team All-America in late May, becoming Vanderbilt's first freshman All-American in women's golf.
Concolino led the Commodores with a 73.10 stroke average during the 2005-06 campaign. The first team All-Southeastern Conference performer claimed medalist honors at two spring tournaments while finishing fourth at the SEC Championships and tying for 10th at the NCAA East Regional.
Brady, a rising senior from Charlotte, N.C., ranked second on the team with a 73.81 stroke average last season. Brady posted four Top 10 finishes last year and was named second team All-SEC by the league's coaches.
The Commodores ended their season, tying for 11th place at the NCAA East Regional.
