    EVANSTON, Ill. -- Northwestern junior Jack Perry (Santa Barbara, Calif./Santa Barbara) has been named a Division I PING All-America honorable mention selection, announced today (June 20) by the Golf Coaches Association of America (GCAA).

    Perry is the 13th All-American in Northwestern's program history and gives the Wildcats three-straight seasons with an All-America award winner after current Asian Tour and Web.com Tour member David Lipsky earned the honor in 2011 and current Japan Tour member Eric Chun received the nod in 2012. In head coach Pat Goss' 17-year tenure, eight different NU golfers have combined to win 12 All-America awards.

    Perry's first-career All-America honor comes following a stellar season that saw him become the first Wildcat since Luke Donald in 2001 to win the Les Bolstad Award for having the lowest regular-season stroke average (71.61) of any Big Ten competitor. Perry racked up nine top-20 finishes in 11 stroke play events including five top-10s and a pair of victories at the season-opening Inverness Intercollegiate and the regular-season-ending Northwestern Spring Invitational.

    Parry's runaway win at the Northwestern Spring Invitational established an NU 54-hole tournament scoring record when he signed for a 16-under 200, besting the previous mark of 202 held jointly by Donald and Lipsky.
