NORTHFIELD, Minn.––Sophomore standout Ned Rohrbach (Winnetka, Ill./New Trier) was named to the 2013-14 Men’s Golf All-Conference Team for the first time in his career. The All-Conference team is composed of the top 10 players (including ties) from the MIAC Championships, as well as up to five players voted on by the coaches. Rohrbach tied for 12th at the 2013 MIAC Men’s Golf Championships, just one shot from a top-ten finish and a guaranteed spot on the All-Conference Team. Yet, Rohrbach’s stellar 76.4 season average and his impressive 11th place finish against a tough field at the Bobby Krig Invitational secured him a coaches’ pick and All-MIAC honors.
Rohrbach is the first Knight to be named to the Men’s Golf All-Conference Team since David Flynn received the honor in 2010. Rohrbach is in good company, as Flynn boasted an outstanding 73.8 average in his freshman season as a Knight. In his last round of the spring season, Rohrbach posted an even-par 72 at Ridges at Sand Creek Golf Course. This final round 72 brought Rohrbach’s season stroke average down to the eighth lowest among conference players.
As part of a conference-wide sportsmanship initiative, the conference also announced the annual All-MIAC Sportsmanship team for golf. Members of the sportsmanship team are selected by their coaches and teammates as individuals who demonstrate ideals of positive sportsmanship both on and off the field of competition. Carleton’s representative on the squad is junior Jorde Ranum (Spring Lake Park, Minn./Spring Lake Park).
