The Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (SCIAC) released the All-SCIAC awards for men's golf on Tuesday and included five members of the eighth-ranked team from the University of Redlands. Senior Alex Stroes (San Marcos, CA) makes it onto the First Team for the third time in his career, while junior Jake Hollander (Peterborough, NH) gains his second appearance. In addition, senior Cade Lawson (Lake Oswego, OR) and first-year Kyle Sharp (Austin, TX) earn their first nods as members of the First Team. Junior Cameron Cooper (Seattle, WA) receives Second-Team recognition for the second consecutive season. In addition, Sharp was named the 2019 SCIAC Newcomer of the Year.

His best performance came on the second day of the conference tournament, as he shot the lowest of the round with a 70 on his way to a fourth-place tie with a 54-hole score of 220.
