WALTHAM, Mass. – Following standout seasons that included two of the three best stroke averages in program history, Bentley University's Cal Meyers (Richfield, Wisc./Slinger HS) and Tommy Ethier (Nashua, N.H./Bishop Guertin HS) have been named to the 2018 PING Division II All-East Region team by the Golf Coaches Association of America.
Meyers, a senior, is making his second straight appearance on the All-Region team while Ethier capped off his freshman year by earning the honor. Both excel in the classroom as well on the course, owning grade point averages north of 3.7.
