LIMA - In only two seasons at the University of Northwestern Ohio, Jake Bolyard has put his mark on the history of the men's basketball program. On Wednesday, Bolyard added another accomplishment to his resume - NAIA All-American.
Bolyard earned a spot on the honorable mention team, the program's second player to be honored as a Division II All-American; former Racers guard Josh Vorst appeared on the team in 2009-10.
Bolyard averaged 22.4 points per game, which was third in the nation and first in the Wolverine-Hoosier Athletic Conference.
"We are really proud of Jake and all of his accomplishments in his first two years at UNOH," men's basketball coach and athletic director Chris Adams said. "He's a talented player, and we are happy he was able to receive this award from the NAIA National All-American selection committee."
Bolyard, a sophomore guard from Orrville, Ohio, was also named second team All-WHAC. He was named third team All-WHAC as a freshman.
