NORMAN, Okla.
-- In what has become one of the most acclaimed careers in the storied history of the Kent State men's golf program, senior John Hahn received another national honor on Thursday (June 23) when he was selected to the PING Honorable Mention All-America team by the Golf Coaches Association of America (GCAA).  Its the third consecutive year Hahn has achieved All-American status as he joins Eric Frishette (1992-93-94) and Ben Curtis (1998-1999-2000) as one of only three, three-time All-America selections in school history.

Hahn earned the distinction this season following a year in which he set a school record and tied for the nation's lead with four individual tournament wins.  His four victories also stretched his career total to seven matching a 17-year old school record he now shares with Frishette.  In addition to the individual wins, Hahn produced a 72.64 scoring average to go along with six top 10s and a 75.1 won-loss finish percentage.

His contributions helped lead the Golden Flashes to a league record 19th Mid-American Conference Championship and a second consecutive top 20 national finish at the NCAA Championship in Oklahoma. 

Hahn's, 2011 award is the 23rd All-America selection for the Golden Flashes. This marks the fourth consecutive year in which the Golden Flashes have had an All-America honoree (David Markle, 2008, Hahn, 2009, 2010, 2011).

Hahn's 72.43 career average is the second lowest in school history behind only Curtis who is currently playing on the PGA Tour.
