Torres Named All-American

Senior Makenzie Torres was named a second team Women's Golf Coaches Association (WGCA) All-American on May 20. Torres is only the Oilers third women's golfer to achieve NCAA Division II All-American status as she joins Shelby Warner (2017) and Kasey Petty (2015, 2016) as Findlay's other recipients.

Torres led the Oilers to a tie for fifth at the 2019 NCAA Division II National Championship, their highest finish in program history. Torres finished tenth at the event with a 54-hole score of 227 (77, 74, 76) and helped propel the Oilers into match play where she won her battle with Florida Tech's Lauren Watson by five strokes. Watson went on to lead Tech to the 2019 NCAA Division II National Championship by winning her semifinal and final match.

An all-East Region selection for the third straight year, Torres was named the Great Midwest Athletic Conference (G-MAC) Player of the Year in each of the past two seasons. She also won two conference championships during her tenure with the program, winning the 2017 Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (GLIAC) title and the 2018 G-MAC championship. She finished as the runner-up in the G-MAC Tournament in 2019.
