After leading the St. John’s men’s golf team to a runner-up finish at the 2013 Big East Championships and all finishing inside the top-10 in the individual championship, junior Ryan McCormick, senior Pat Wilson and classmate Ryan Gay were named to the Big East All-Conference Team.

McCormick was one of four unanimous selections to the all-conference squad after leading the Red Storm with a 73.42 stroke average and five top-10 finishes.

In the fall season, McCormick finished strong with a ninth-place finish at the St. John’s-hosted Mission Inn Classic, followed by a fifth-place finish at the Wendy’s Kiawah Classic.

In the spring, the Middletown, N.J. native finished 10th at the Anteater Invitational before a fourth at the Wolfpack Spring Open for his best finish of the year.

McCormick rounded out his junior campaign finishing sixth at the Big East Championships en route to being named the Red Storm’s MVP and landing on the all-conference team for the second-straight season.

Wilson was also named to the all-Big East team for the second-straight year after finishing second on the team with a 74.39 stroke average and four top-10 finishes.

The Andover, N.J. native was the top finisher for the Red Storm at both of St. John’s home events in the fall, snagging seventh at The McLauglin and finishing fifth at the Mission Inn Classic.

Wilson continued his strong play at the Kemper Intercollegiate, where he finished ninth before a pair of two-under rounds landed him seventh at the Big East Championships.

Gay came on strong in the spring season and was the top finisher for the Red Storm at the Big East Championships in his only season at St. John’s, where he garnered fourth.

The Pittston, Maine, native was fourth on the squad with a 75.87 stroke average with three top-25 finishes. Gay’s best finish of the fall came when he went two-under in the first round of the McDonald Cup on his way to 15th place.

In the spring season, he posted five rounds at or below par, culminating with a spectacular performance at the Big East championships where Gay was below par for all three rounds.
