University of Missouri-St. Louis seniors Jose Acevedo and Julien de Poyen and junior Markus Lindberg of the men’s golf team have all been named to the Division II PING A-Midwest Region team, as announced by the GCAA.
Acevedo owned a scoring average of 73.58 and had four top-10 finishes, including a tie for fourth place at the GLVC Championships last month. He graduates second on the program’s career scoring charts with an average of 74.55.
de Poyen, ranked 61st by Golfstat, owned a program single-season second-best 72.67 scoring average and recorded eight top-10 finishes, including a first place showing at the DII Midwest Fall Regional. He also finished with 16 rounds of par or better this season, the most by any golfer in a single season in program history.
de Poyen graduates third on the program’s career scoring charts with an average of 74.75 and is the co-career leader for rounds of par or better with 29. He also owns the career records for birdies (315) and eagles (14).
Lindberg, the GLVC Golfer of the Year, earns PING All-Region honors for the second straight season. Ranked 52nd by Golfstat, led the Tritons with a 72.64 average, which ranks as the program’s best single-season mark. He had five top-10 finishes, including three first place showings. In the Tritons’ first tournament during the fall season, Lindberg became just the 10th collegiate player at any level to shoot a round of 60.
Lindberg will enter his senior season with a program-best career scoring average of 74.25 and as the co-career leader for rounds of par or better (29).
The trio helped UMSL to a program-best 291.25 scoring average, a No. 11 national ranking, four team titles and the program’s sixth NCAA trip in the last seven years.
