University of Colorado at Colorado Springs senior Tyler Bishop was named the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference Men's Golfer of the Year and UCCS' Phil Trujillo was named the RMAC Men's Golf Coach of the Year, the conference announced Thursday.

Three other Mountain Lions joined Bishop on the All-RMAC team. Riley Andrews and Bishop were named to the All-RMAC first team, while Brian Morfeld was named to the second team and David Cosel was named third team.

Bishop shot eight consecutive rounds under par this past fall and had 12 straight rounds at even par or better. For the season, 14 of his 29 rounds have been under par. He is averaging an RMAC-low 72.21 strokes per round.

Under Trujillo, UCCS won the RMAC title for the fourth consecutive season, winning all four of the tournaments that, combined, determined the champion.
