Michael Turner and Peter Horstman were both honored by being named to Big South All-Conference team, the league announced. 

Turner, a sophomore from Lititiz, Pa., was named to the Big South all-conference team after a stellar showing at the recent PUPS Big South Conference Championships this week. Turner tied for fifth, while shooting five-over par for the tournament clinching an all-conference nod. 

"Mike played real well this week," said head coach Jeff Thomas. "I was real happy to see him have something to build off of going into the summer and into his junior season this fall." 

Horstman, a junior from Castle Pines, Colo., was named to the Big South All-Academic team for the second-straight year. Horstman, a business major, played in all but two of Liberty's tournaments this season with his best outing a one-under par finish at Elon's Sea Trail Intercollegiate. Horstman has twice been named to the Big South Presidential Honor Roll. 

The Flames return to the links on May 5 when they play in their final tournament of the year as they partake in the Rutherford Intercollegiate hosted by Penn State.
