Ball and Harm were named to the Atlantic 10 Conference's Men's Golf All-Academic Team Tuesday. The Rams were the only A-10 school to land two players on the five-man team. Dayton's Andrew Steffensmeier, La Salle's Mike Johnson and David Germann of Richmond rounded out the fivesome.
It's not the first notable academic honor for Ball, who was named a Cleveland Golf/Srixon All-America Scholar in 2013. Ball earned a spot on the 2014 All-Atlantic 10 Team in April when his seventh-place finish helped lift VCU to its first conference title since 2009. He averaged 74.16 strokes per round in 11 tournaments during the 2013-14 season.
In four years, Ball crafted a 3.4 grade-point-average. In May, he received his bachelor's degree in real estate from VCU's Snead School of Business.
A sophomore, Harm placed 21st at the A-10 Championship this year and recorded a top-10 finish in VCU's win at the ODU/Outer Banks Collegiate in October.
Harm has earned four Dean's List citations as a Ram and is carrying at 3.994 GPA. He is majoring in mechanical engineering.
