FRISCO — Sophomore Ryan Werre was named second-team All-Southland Conference in a vote by the league’s head coaches and sports information directors, the league office announced Monday.
It marked the second all-conference honor for the Redcliff, Alberta, native, who collected Southland Freshman of the Year and third-team accolades a year ago. He is the fifth Roadrunner to earn multiple All-Southland honors, joining Kyle Collins (2007, ’09), Magnus Dohlvik (1997-98), John Elizondo (2004, ’06) and Gibby Martens (2000-02).
Werre led the Roadrunners with a 73.53 stroke average and five top-15 finishes, including three top 10s, this year. He tied for seventh place at last week’s conference tournament after carding a 224 (77-71-76) for his second consecutive top-10 league showing. He registered a season-best fourth-place finish with a career-low three-under 213 (70-72-71) at the Rice Intercollegiate in February and also cracked the top 10 with an even-par 214 (72-70-72) to tie for 10th at the Louisiana Classics in March.
Philipp Westermann of Southeastern Louisiana was named Southland Player of the Year, Juan Diego Plasencia of Texas State was voted Newcomer of the Year. Conference Champion Lamar saw Luke Jerling and Brian White be named Freshman and Coach of the Year, respectively.
