SACRAMENTO, Calif. — After completing the best single season in Sacramento State history, senior Ryan Williams was named first team all-America Sky Conference.
Williams was one of five golfers named to the first team. During the season, he averaged 72.58 over his 33 rounds. That mark set the school single season average, breaking Robert Hamilton's average of 72.88 from 1997-98. The Clovis, Calif., native finished among the top 10 six times in his 11 tournaments, including a tie for third at the Anteater Invitational and a playoff loss at the Folino Invitational.
"This is a well deserved honor for Ryan," Sacramento State head men's golf coach Christopher Hall said. "He has an unbelievable work ethic and his attitude on the course is the best I've ever been around. This should help push him forward in his golf career."
Williams was consistent throughout the season, as 18 of his 33 rounds were 72 or lower. From the final tournament of the fall through the opening two tournaments during the spring, Williams shot par or better in eight of the nine rounds, including a 66 in the final of the Pacific Invitational.
