HARROGATE, TN -- The Railsplitters golf team and head coach Travis Muncy drew a curtain on the 2011-12 season last night, as the team handed out five awards at the LMU Athletics Banquet, which celebrates the moments, players and teams that made up Railsplitters' athletics this year.

The men's golf team just completed another strong season as they never finished outside of the top-6 in any event with seven top-3 finishes and a pair of wins. The Railspitters had a tough outing in the SAC Championship, falling to a sixth-place finish and dropping out of the top-10 in the NCAA Southeast Region rankings. 

The first award was the 110% Award, given to the player who gives the greatest effort on and off the course. That award was presented to senior Josh Cornett, who Muncy noted, "established himself as one of the best collegiate players I've had the privilege of coaching". Cornett recorded a 75.55 stroke average and notched four top-10 performances. His best outing came at the Tusculum Invitational and the Argonaut Invitational where he earned a couple of ties for seventh.

The next award went to Johnny Page as he was named the Most Improved Player for his efforts this season. Muncy acknowledged that Page "was truly dedicated to the game." The Zionville, North Carolina native compiled a 77.07 stroke average with his best finish coming at the Outback Steakhouse Intercollegiate where he earned a tie for seventh-place.

The Coaches Award went to a player that Muncy "cannot say enough good things about". In his second season, Luke Butler has been a consummate hard worker and team player. In two events this season, Butler compiled a 78.75 stroke average.

The Freshman of the Year went Braden Galyon. Muncy stated that "he made an immediate impact and we look forward to his accomplishments". Playing in all but one event, Galyon notched a 76.3 average with his best finish coming with a tie for second in the Pinehurst Challenge.

The final award went to Eric Kennedy as he was named the Most Valuable Player two weeks after being named to the All-South Atlantic Conference Second Team. In his senior season, Kennedy compiled a stroke average of 73 with a pair of wins on the season. In total, Kennedy finished in the top-3 in four events. In his final SAC Championship, the Knoxville, Tennessee native finished in a tie for fourth. By all statistical measures, he will go down as one of the best to ever play at LMU.

Travis Muncy also took time to thank his seniors, Eric Kennedy, Hagan Hensley, Josh Cornett and Johnny Page for their dedication to the LMU golf program. Preparations are underway for the 2012-13 campaign.
