The Wakarusa, Indiana native tallied a pair of victories and finished inside the top-10 in 10 of 12 events.

Crossroads League tournament medalist Lucas Beck earned the nod as the Crossroads League Newcomer of the Year and a spot on the All-League team for Taylor. A freshman from Zionsville, Indiana, Beck posted a 75.07 scoring average in 27 rounds while finishing inside the top-10 in six events.  

Taylor senior Jeremy Ray earned All-League honors for the second consecutive season and junior Nate Morris earned his first All-Crossroads League Selection.

Indiana Wesleyan had seniors Nick Schad and Patrick Hardy cap their careers by being named All-Crossroads League team while sophomore Cameron Luczka also earned a spot on the All-Crossroads League team.
