In his first year of collegiate competition, Lee earned a top-10 finish at five tournaments, including a victory at the Dixie State Regional Preview in October against a field of 135 golfers. The native of Seoul, South Korea has played in 26 rounds this season and leads the team with a 73.4 strokes per round average.

At the 2019 GNAC championships last week, Lee was SFU's second-highest finisher (t-7th) with rounds of 71, 73, 72 for a three-over-par total of 216.

Joining Lee on the All-Conference Team are second-team selections Goodfellow, Lovan and Kerr. A freshman, Goodfellow found his stride at the right time to earn a share of second place at the Hanny Stanislaus Invite. The Parksville native then followed it up with a team-high fourth-place tie at the conference championships. He carded 71, 75, 69 for a three-round total of 215 (+2).

Lovan played in all nine of the Clan's tournaments this season and secured four top-10 finishes. He is averaging 73.8 strokes per round. Meanwhile, Kerr owns a 74.3 strokes average and his best result came at the Stanislaus Invitational where he finished in a tie for 10th. Both golfers have been strong leaders for the younger players throughout the 2018-19 campaign.

Simon Fraser now awaits the announcement of the NCAA Div. 2 championships field, which is scheduled for April 26. The team is currently ranked 17th nationally and sixth in the West Region, putting them in good position to earn a selection to the West/South Central Regional, beginning May 9 in St. George, Utah.
