NEWARK, Del. -- University of Delaware men’s golf head coach Mike Keogh has announced that Blue Hen rising senior Ben Conroy has been named team captain for the 2012-13 season.

Conroy tied for the team lead with four top-10 finishes on the year, including a second place finish at the Navy Fall Classic that earned him Colonial Athletic Association Co-Men’s Golfer of the Week honors.
He also tied for sixth place at the George Washington Invitational, Villanova Wildcat Invitational, and Manor Intercollegiate, while posting the top finish by a Blue Hen at the Barnabas Health Intercollegiate and ODU Outer Banks Invitational.
Conroy also earned the Team Sportsmanship Award following the season.
