COLUMBUS, Ohio. – Ohio State junior golfer Daniel Wetterich was named an All-Big Ten second team honoree on Tuesday as selected by the conference’s head coaches.

Wetterich has had a stellar season, averaging a team-best 71.86 strokes per round over 10 events. That does not include his match play victory over Michigan’s Kyle Mueller in the Big Ten Match Play Championship when Mueller was the top-ranked player in the conference. Wetterich has also finished in the top-20 six times in the 10 events including a third place finish at the Bearcat Invitational where he fired a career-best 63 in the second round.

In addition to Wetterich’s honor, redshirt-senior Josh Wick was named the team’s Big Ten Sportsmanship Award winner. Wick returned from an injury in the fall to play in five events this spring and has a scoring average of 74.43.

The Buckeyes will find out their NCAA fate on Wednesday evening as the NCAA Regional selections will be made live on The Golf Channel at 6 p.m. Ohio State is hosting one of the six regionals at the OSU Golf Club’s Scarlet Course.
