FRISCO, Texas -
Senior Stephane Dubois, junior Gustaf Burenstam and freshman Zander Gous have been named to the 2014 All-Southland Conference teams announced league officials Monday morning. Dubois was named to the second team, while Burenstam received third-team honors. Gous received honorable mention recognition.
"I'm very happy for all three of these guys," said head coach Brian White. "I felt they were deserving of the honor prior to the voting, and it's always good to see hard work rewarded. Stephane was placed in a tough spot being the team's lone senior, and he was a true leader for us. I hate to lose him but I'm excited to know we will have the other two back next year."
The team's lone senior, Dubois recorded two top-10 finishes during the 2013-14 season. He led the Cardinals with a five-over 221 to finish eighth at the Southland Conference Championships. That performance came just a week after he carded an eight-under 208 to lead the Cardinals to the team title at the Coca-Cola Wofford Invitational. Not only did Lamar win the team title, but Dubois just missed an individual title finishing second only two strokes off the leader.
Dubois finished the season with a 73.7 stroke average in 33 rounds of action. A former Wisconsin transfer, Dubois will graduate with a 74.5 stroke average during his time in Beaumont.
A third-team All-Southland selection, Burenstam closed out the season with a 74.0 stroke average. He posted two top-10 finishes this season, included a runner-up finish at the Wofford Invitational. Burenstam tied Dubois with an eight-under par to place second on the individual leaderboard in Spartanburg, S.C. Burenstam's finish helped Lamar rally from 11 strokes down on the final day of the tournament to record a come-from-behind victory. Lamar finished the tournament 31 strokes under par as a team.
Burenstam closed out the season with a top-30 finish at the Southland Championships. He recorded a 76-79-76 - 231 to finish tied for 28th overall.
A mid-year enrollee, Gous had an immediate impact on the LU roster. Closing out the season with a 74.6 stroke average, Gous was one of the top freshmen in the Southland Conference this season. He led the Cardinals with an eight-under par after the first two rounds of the Coca-Cola Wofford Invitational and went on to finish 16th overall with a four-under 212. He also posted a top-25 finish to close out the year at the Southland Conference Championships.
