Ching, who recently tied for first at the 2011 WCC Championships, also won medalist honors in two fall tournaments (Western Refining College All-America Golf Classic and Wolf Pack Classic). Currently ranked 22nd in the nation, he owns a stroke average of 71.05 for 35 rounds. This marks the third straight year for Ching to be honored on the All-WCC First Team.

"Alex has had a great year placing 1st three times and totaling nine top-20 finishes from 11 events," said head coach Tim Mickelson. " That is a tremendously successful and consistent season and I'm glad he was recognized accordingly for his efforts."

Torero coach Tim Mickelson was named the 2011 co-WCC Coach of the Year, sharing the honor with Portland's Bill Winter. This marks Mickelson's fourth award in eight seasons at the helm of the Torero program. He currently has the Toreros ranked 24th in the nation and will directing his squad at the 2011 NCAA West Regionals May 19-21 at The Farms Golf Club in Rancho Santa Fe, California.

Joining Ching on the 2011 WCC Men's Golf All-Conference Team is senior teammate Gunner Wiebe (Denver, CO). Wiebe, who won medalist honors at the Kauai Collegiate, owns a team-best stroke average of 70.24 (33 rounds). This is Wiebe's second straight season honored on the All-WCC First Team. Two Toreros were selected honorable mention - senior Ben Murray (La Quinta, CA) and freshman Manav Shah (Bakersfield, CA).

The Toreros next competition will be at the 2011 NCAA Division I Western Regional's at The Farms Golf Club in Rancho Santa Fe, California, May 19-21. This will be USD's fourth straight trip to the Regionals and they will be attempting to advance to Nationals for the third straight year.
