NORMAN, Okla. - Nick Ludka was selected to the PING All-Region Team for the Great Lakes Region as announced by the Golf Coaches Association of America on Tuesday.

A senior from Saginaw, Mich. (Nouvel Catholic HS), Ludka is one of 15 players on this year's All-Region Team. He is the third K player in program history to earn this honor.

Ludka led the Hornets with a 74.1 average this season. He was second in the league with a 70.8 average in conference matches during the fall, highlighted by a round of 68 at the MIAA Fall Tournament leading to medalist honors at that event. Ludka earned All-MIAA First Team honors as well as the MIAA's Sportsmanship Award.

Ludka helped the Hornets to a fourth-place finish in the MIAA in the fall. Ludka's medalist honors at the MIAA Spring Qualifier helped the Hornets to a second-place finish, just four team strokes out of first place.

Ludka earned MIAA Golfer of the Week honors three times this season and was the only NCAA Division III finalist for the GCAA's prestigious Byron Nelson Award.

Ludka's season average of 74.1 tied the school record. His average of 70.8 in league play broke the previous school record by nearly three strokes per round. Nick also holds the school record for career MIAA average (74.4) while ranking third in overall career average (75.4).

Kalamazoo's previous All-Region honorees were Phil Ritchie (2016-17) and David Smith (2014-15).
