KANSAS CITY – Taylor senior Alec Dutkowski became the first four-time NAIA All-American in the history of the Taylor men’s golf program.
Dutkowski was named to the NAIA All-American second team following a standout senior season at Taylor that concluded with a record-breaking seven-under-par round of 64 on the final day of the NAIA National Championship last month.
A native of Wakarusa and a NorthWood High School graduate, Dutkowski earned his fourth NAIA All-American honor in 2019 after earning third-team honors following his freshman season, second-team honors following his sophomore season, and first-team honors last season. The three-time Crossroads League Player of the Year will leave Taylor as one of the most decorated players in Crossroads League history after claiming ten tournament victories in his career.
Dutkowski finished his senior campaign with a 72.97 scoring average in 31 rounds while notching a pair of victories and 11 top-10 finishes in 13 events. Dutkowski finishes his career as Taylor’s all-time leader in career scoring average at 73.11 while competing in a program-record 122 rounds and posting 47 rounds of par or better during his career.
“Words can’t adequately describe Alec’s impact on the Taylor golf program,” Taylor coach Cameron Andry said. “He graduates as the best player to ever play at Taylor and it has been such a joy and honor to watch him compete and represent TU over the last four years. Beyond his abilities on the course, Alec is an outstanding young man with a huge heart for others and I can’t wait to see what the future holds for him!”
Dutkowski was the only Crossroads League player to earn All-American honors this season.
