Sims, a junior, earned Division III second-team all-Ohio honors after shooting a steady two-day total of 155 at the Ohio State University Scarlet Golf Course.

He opened with a 77 on Friday and followed with a 78 in the final round Saturday.

“I was hoping to get first team, but I was pretty happy with how I played,” said Sims. “My goal is to win it next year.”
