Denver, Colorado - University of Tulsa freshman sensation David Inglis and Head Coach Bill Brogden headline the Western Athletic Conference postseason awards, as announced by the league office today.

The league's head coaches select the all-WAC teams and player, freshman and coach of the year honorees by a vote.

Inglis, a freshman from Roslin, Scotland, was named he WAC's Freshman of the Year. A day earlier, Inglis won the individual WAC title with an even-par 216, two strokes ahead of second-team all-WAC selection Scott Volpitto of TCU. The victory was Inglis' second in his first season of collegiate competition and his 12th top finish in all 12 tournaments played. He was named WAC Player of the Week three times this season. In 35 rounds of golf this season, Inglis had a team-leading 72.1 stroke average.

Brogden and UTEP's Rick Todd shared Coach of the Year honors. Guiding his team into position to win the WAC title, Brogden, in his 15th season at the helm, saw his Hurricane grab the second-round lead but fall by one stroke to TCU in the end. The 40th ranked Hurricane finished in the top seven 10 times this season, including second-place showings at the Cleveland Intercollegiate, UT-San Antonio Invitational, LSU Spring Invitational and WAC Championship.

It marked the 10th time in his 32-year coaching career that Brogden has earned conference coach of the year honors. It is his first WAC Coach of the Year award, but his fourth time as the Tulsa head coach. Brogden was a three-time recipient of the award when the Hurricane was a member of the Missouri Valley Conference.

Fresno State sophomore standout Nick Watney who has been the WAC's highest-rated golfer for much of the season, was named the WAC's Player of the Year.
