FORT WORTH, Texas -

ACU senior Alex Carpenter earned his fourth straight Lone Star Conference Player of the Year award, while Tarleton State’s Isabel Jimenez-Perea claimed top billing on the women’s side Sunday night as the league’s annual postseason golf awards were announced at the championships banquet.

League officials announced the all-conference teams and individual awards at the banquet, held in conjunction with the LSC Championships at The Golf Club at Champions Circle in Fort Worth.  The tournament begins Monday with two rounds, followed by the final round on Tuesday.

Carpenter, who was a unanimous choice, won four consecutive tournaments this spring and five events overall during his senior season.  A three-time NCAA Division II all-America selection, he has won 20 of 48 tournaments during his four-year career including the LSC titles in 2010 and 2012.  Carpenter is believed to hold the NCAA career record for individual collegiate wins, having surpassed the previous record of 16 set by Phil Mickelson from 1989-92.

Cameron’s Cullen Stahl picked up Freshman of Year honors, while the Aggies Jerry Hrnciar was named Coach of the Year for the men.

Joining Carpenter on the men’s first team All-LSC was Wildcat teammate Corbin Renner, CU’s Trey Lawson and Austin Weaver, and MSU’s Derek Oland.

ACU junior Trey Sullivan was the Wildcats' lone representative on the all-conference second team.

Ian Evans, a senior accounting major from San Antonio, was the Wildcats' lone selection to the academic all-conference team.
