NAPERVILLE, Ill. — Ryan Williams was selected at the America Sky Conference Scholar-Athlete for the 2012-13 season.

During the year, he also tied the school 54-hole record after shooting 204 at the Pacific Invitational. His season average of 72.69 in 36 rounds broke Robert Hamilton's mark of 72.88 from 1997-98.
