RINDGE, N.H. (May 22, 2019) Franklin Pierce University men's golf sophomore Dylan Plis (Camillus, N.Y.) has been named to the Division II Ping East All-Region team it was announced last week by the Golf Coaches Association of America (GCAA).

Plis, a two-time New England Intercollegiate Golf Association (NEIGA) All-New England selection, the 2017-18 NE10 Rookie of the Year, an All-NE10 First Team choice, and two-time NE10 Men's Golfer of the Week adds another accolade to his already decorated collegiate career.

He had five top-10 finishes including two individual medalist honors at the 84th Annual NEIGA Championship (147, +3) and versus Saint Michael's in stroke play (69, -3). The 68 (-4) second round total at the NEIGA Championship was a new personal career-low for Plis and helped him to his second straight All-New England nod. He finished third at the FPU Fall Invitational (145 (+1) pacing his team to a team championship as well.

At the NCAA Division II Atlantic/East Regional, Plis paced the Ravens from the no. 3 spot in the five-golfer lineup. Plis tied for sixth place with three other golfers as he produced a 222 (+6) three-round total including a low 72 (E) first round. He carried the field of golfers in pars racking up a tournament-high 41 of them.

Plis was one of five Northeast-10 Conference golfers to be chosen as an All-Region selection.
