Toledo sophomore golfer Chris Selfridge was honored for his play throughout the 2012-13 season with a spot on the PING All-Midwest Region Team, the Golf Coaches Association of America announced Tuesday.

Selfridge is one of 155 student-athletes across six regions — Northeast, East, Southeast, Midwest, Central and West — named to the All-Region squads. He is one of just five golfers representing the Mid-American Conference on the Midwest team, joining Kent State’s Corey Connors and Tyler Pendrith, Akron’s Charlie Bull and Ball State’s Tyler Merkel.

Selfridge led the MAC with a 72.1 stroke average and finished as the top Rocket in nine of the 10 events that he competed in. He registered nine top 20 individual finishes, eight in the top 10 and five among the top five, including his first career win at the Georgetown Intercollegiate Oct. 22-23 and a runner-up showing at the MAC Championship.

He has earned All-MAC accolades in each of his first two years as a Rocket, receiving second-team honors as a freshman before garnering first-team laurels this season. He also became the first Toledo golfer to participate in the NCAA Regionals since 2004, tying for 25th place at the Columbus Regional.

The Golf Coaches Association of America is the professional association of men’s golf coaches. Established in 1958, this nonprofit organization is dedicated to educating, promoting and recognizing its members who participate in men’s golf at all levels. Through its established events and programs, the association maintains a goal of increasing awareness and the status of men’s golf.
