Goodyear resident Aaron Ramos, a sophomore at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock, was named a second team selection for the All-Sun Belt Conference for the 2018-19 men’s golf season.

“This helps solidify what was a record-breaking year for our team, and it’s a great way to end a season,” head coach Jake Harrington said. “Aaron was our most consistent player, especially down the stretch, and he was someone we could rely on in big tournaments.”

Ramos posted his best season as a Trojan in 2018-19, registering a 71.94 scoring average, ranking third in program history. He is just the third golfer to finish a season with a sub-72 average. Ramos was one of two Trojans to compete in all 11 events of the year, notching 15 rounds of par-or-better and three top-10 tournament finishes, shooting in the 60s seven times.

In his two years in Little Rock, Ramos has been in the Trojan lineup for all 22 events and currently boasts a 73.52 career scoring average, which ranks fourth all time. The Goodyear native has shot par-or-better in 23 of his 65 rounds played with four top-10 finishes and seven top-20 showings.
