HANOVER, N.H. — The Golf Coaches Association of America (GCAA) announced the men's Division I PING All-Region Teams, and Dartmouth's Peter Williamson (Hanover, N.H.) and James Pleat (Nashua, N.H.) each earned a spot on the Northeast squad. A total of 155 players across six regions - Northeast, East, Southeast, Midwest, Central and West - earned all-region honors for 2012.

Williamson never finished lower than fifth in any tournament in his senior campaign, winning three and placing second in four others, plus won the Ivy title by an incredible eight strokes. It marked his third Ivy League title, becoming only the second golfer in the history of the league to accomplish the feat.

He also earned his third Ivy League Player of the Year honor, and earned All-Ivy honors for the fourth time. Williamson is only the ninth player to earn All-Ivy honors four times. Only 12 golfers bested his score in a tournament for this entire season. He ended his career at Dartmouth with a fifth-place finish at the NCAA Central Regional. Williamson earned all-region honors last season.

For the first time in his career, Pleat was named to the all-region team. The junior was consistently the team's second-best golfer in the fall and the spring. He tied for 11th at the Ivy League Championship, missing out on All-Ivy honors by one spot. Pleat finished in the top 10 in three tournaments with his best finish coming at the Macdonald Cup on Oct. 2 when he tied for seventh.
