LEXINGTON, KY - Transylvania senior Justin Tereshko (Madison, Ind./H.S.) and sophomore Clay Hinton (Elizabethtown, Ky./H.S.) have been named to the PING All-America third team by the Golf Coaches Association of America.

The Pioneers are coming off a second-place showing in last week's NCAA Division III National Championship at the Mission Hills Resort Golf Club. Tereshko, a first-team All-America choice last year, finished at 10 over par and in a tie for 17th individually. He was even par over his final three rounds.

Hinton was at 301 and tied for 31st.

A total of 10 players were named to the All-American first team and seven more were second-team selections. Tereshko and Hinton were among 20 players on the third team.

Tereshko was also the Heartland Conference Player of the Year. Both Tereshko and Hinton were also first-team All-HCAC performers and were named to the All-Great Lakes Region first team.
