University of North Florida sophomore golfer Sean Dale was named a Division I PING Second-Team All-America on Wednesday, as announced by the Golf Coaches Association of America.  He joins nine other golfers around the nation receiving second-team recognition for the 2010 season.


“What a great year for Sean,” said UNF head coach Scott Schroeder. “He has been a steady player for the team all year and one we knew would compete to win each week. Being an All-America is a hard thing to accomplish and is something that Sean can be proud of.”


Dale tied for 25th at the NCAA DI Men’s National Championships, scoring a 1-under 215 (72-74-69) while leading the Ospreys to a 14th place team finish. 


He placed 10th at NCAA South Central Regionals, scoring a 3-under 213 (71-73-71). He has tallied 14 sub-par rounds this season with a season low 66 coming at the Wolf Run Invitational where he claimed the top individual finish at the tournament. Dale has finished in the top-10 six times this season and claimed Atlantic Sun Golfer of the Month in September. He ranked as high as first in the country during the fall.


Dale finished his season ranked 11th in the Golfstat Index and 19th in the Golfweek/Sagarin standings. UNF finished its season ranked 22nd in the Golfstat Index and 20th in the Golfweek/Sagarin standings.
