Three members of the Iowa men's golf team were named to All-Big Ten teams on Monday, according to a release from the conference.

Senior Barrett Kelpin was named first-team All-Big Ten, becoming only the 15th player in school history to earn such an honor. It was the first all-conference award for Kelpin.

The Hawkeyes also placed two players on the second team. Sophomore Steven Ihm and senior Chris Brant were two of the six players on the Big Ten's second team; Brant was a second-team honoree in 2011.

Brant was also honored as Iowa's recipient of the Big Ten Sportsmanship Award for the fourth-consecutive year. Brant was the only award-winner of the 12 conference schools to claim his fourth-straight sportsmanship award.

The Hawkeyes will find out if their season will continue when NCAA regional selections are announced on May 7.

If the team is selected, it will play in one of six sites: Greensboro, N.C., Athens, Ga., Ann Arbor, Mich., Bowling Green, Ky., Norman, Okla., and Stanford, Calif.
