Arizona men’s golf racks up Pac-12 awards

Information from Arizona’s media relations department contributed to this report:

 A banner season for Arizona men’s golf that included its sweep of the team and individual titles at the Pac-12 Championships gave the program the lion’s share of the conference awards. Brad Reeves was named Pac-12 Player of the Year, and head coach Jim Anderson was Coach of the Year to highlight a bevy of all-conference awards earned by Wildcats.

Reeves and fellow senior Trevor Werbylo were selected to the All-Pac-12 First Team for the first time in both of their careers. Their selections also marked the first time Arizona has had multiple first-team, all-conference honorees since Henry Liaw and Chris Nallen in 2004. Reeves and Werbylo combined to win three events this season at the Arizona Intercollegiate, The Prestige, and the Pac-12 Championships.

The Wildcats also placed a pair of golfers on the All-Pac-12 Second Team with David Laskin and Chase Sienkiewicz. The second-team selection is the first in the careers of the senior and sophomore as Sienkiewicz also earned a spot on the Pac-12 All-Newcomer Team.

Laskin was the Pac-12 Scholar-Athlete of the Year and added an all-conference nod to his resume following a strong final season at Arizona that included a top-10 finish at the Arizona Intercollegiate and a top-20 finish at the Pac-12 Championships.

Sienkiewicz played the best golf of his sophomore season down the stretch, which included the best tournament of his career with a 10-under score and sixth-place finish at the ASU Thunderbird Invitational.

Arizona’s season will continue at NCAA Regionals on Monday, May 17, as the No. 4 seed at the Cle Elum Regional. The Wildcats will tee off for the first of three days at Tumble Creek Golf & Country Club outside of Seattle, Washington.
