William and Mary's all-conference duo of Jeremy Wells '13 and rising junior Alex Hicks (Cape May Court House, N.J.) each picked up another honor Friday, earning spots on the Virginia Sports Information Director's Men's Golf All-State team.  The Tribe pair were each named to the second team, and became W&M's first all-state honorees since 2008.  VaSID's top awards went to State Player of the Year Scott Vincent of Virginia Tech, Rookie of the Year David Germann of Richmond, and Coach of the Year Jeff Thomas of Liberty.

A Hopewell, Va., native, Well averaged 72.81 strokes per round this season, second-best ever for the Tribe, and he wrapped up his career with a 74.49 average, third-best all-time at W&M.  Wells won his first individual medal this spring with a victory at the Towson Invitational, and is one of just two players in school history to have more than 600 head-to-head victories in three-straight seasons.  He ranks second in rounds played with 108, second in rounds of par or better with 31, and fifth in wins with 2,317.  In April, Wells was named one of four finalists for the W&M Senior Athlete of the Year award.

Hicks wrapped up his season by finishing second at the CAA Championships, the Tribe's first runner-up showing since 2008.  His season-average of 73.78 was a full two-stroke improvement from his freshman year, and ranks eighth all-time at W&M.  Hicks also ranks eighth in single-season wins with 717, becoming just the ninth-player ever to surpass 700 victories in a year.  With two more years still to come, Hicks already ranks seventh in school history with a 74.78 stroke average.
