Two University of Hawai’i at Hilo golfers were selected to the All-PacWest Men’s Golf Third Team list for the 2015-2016 season.

Freshman Jared Kinoshita and senior Kyeton Littel were named to the All-PacWest list on Tuesday. For Littel, from Kahului, Maui, it was his second all-conference award earned in his collegiate career. He was named to the All-PacWest First Team following his sophomore campaign.

Kinoshita, who hails from Bakersfiled, Calif., was a medalist at this year’s Hawai’i Challenge. He also finished in a tie for 34th place at the PacWest Conference men’s championship last month.

Littel completes his career with three top-ten finishes. His best showing this season came at the East/West Bay Area Invitational, where he earned a tie for fifth place in his only top-ten result of the season.

BYU-Hawai’i’s Brent Grant and Bob Owan were voted as the conference’s Golfer of the Year and Coach of the Year, respectively. Dixie State’s Andrew Chu was named Freshman of the Year.
