Wells Named to All-SEC Second Team

BATON ROUGE — LSU sophomore Chris Wells was named a member of the 2005 All-Southeastern Conference Second Team as announced by the league office Monday.

Wells earned All-SEC honors for the first time in his career after transferring to LSU from Pacific prior to the 2004-05 season. At least one Tiger has earned All-SEC honors in every season since 1982.

Wells, a native of Mobile, Ala., has competed in all 11 tournaments for the Tigers this season and leads the team with a 72.78 stroke average in 33 rounds, including 13 rounds of par or better. He is tied for second in the SEC with six top-10 finishes and has recorded one top-20 finish.

Wells earned his best finish of the season in the LSU Spring Invitational at the University Club when he placed fifth with a three-round total of even-par 216. He recorded his lowest 54-hole score of the season in the University Club Intercollegiate when he finished in sixth place with a 10-under par 206, including a career-best 6-under 66 in the second round.

Brian Craig of Kentucky was named SEC Coach of the Year in his fourth season with the program after guiding the Wildcats to their first SEC title in school history. Kentucky’s John Holmes was voted SEC Golfer of the Year, while South Carolina’s Mark Anderson was named SEC Freshman of the Year and fellow Gamecock West Streib was voted SEC Scholar-Athlete of the Year.
