The roster of the 2011 All-Big 12 team was released Tuesday, and a trio of Longhorns received honors. Senior Bobby Hudson, junior Dylan Frittelli and freshman Toni Hakula were among 11 student-athletes recognized by the conference.

Hudson was honored for the third time in his career after posting three top-10 finishes this season. His best finish came at the Amer Ari Invitational in which he tied for first.

Frittelli, last year’s golfer of the year, was once again commended by the conference. He currently leads the Longhorns with a 72.97 stroke average, and most recently competed in his third Big 12 Championship, where he finished in 11th place.

Hakula becomes the fifth overall and second consecutive Longhorn to win the conference’s newcomer of the year award.

The NCAA announces its selections for the NCAA regional championships on May 9. The six NCAA regional championship events begin May 19.
