Daniel and Polston -
BOWLING GREEN, Ky. - Cumberland's Garrett Daniel and Zach Polston were named First Team All-Mid-South Conference, as announced by the league office at the conclusion of last week's conference tournament in Bowling Green, Ky.
All-Mid-South Conference honors take into account all seven rounds in MSC events during the academic year, including the fall and spring invitational tournaments and the conference championships. The two lowest scores are thrown out in determining all-conference accolades.
Daniel placed third at the Mid-South Conference Championships last week, posting the low round of the tournament with a six-under 66 in the second round. The Linden native finished fifth at the MSC Fall Invitational in Mt. Juliet and tied for 22nd at the MSC Spring Invitational in London, Ky.
Polston tied for seventh at the conference tournament and tied for sixth at the MSC Spring Invitational. The Lafayette native tied for 16th at the MSC Fall Invitational. He was a Second Team All-MSC selection last season for the Phoenix.
Cumberland erased a nine-shot deficit on the final day of the conference tournament to win the event by one stroke, earning an automatic bid in the NAIA Championships set for May 16-19 at TPC Deere Run in Silvis, Ill.
