Logan Smith capped off his junior season the William Woods' men's golf team by being named to the NAIA All-American first team.

A total of 45 individuals were selected by the NAIA Men's Golf Coaches' Association All-America Committee, including Smith, the Owls' lone representative. He earned his second NAIA PING All-American honor earlier this season as well.

Smith started this season strong by shooting four straight rounds under par. He then compiled a year where he recorded five tournament wins and an average round score of 71.06 — a program record requiring a minimum of 10 rounds — through 17 rounds of play.

As a team, with Smith at the forefront, the Owls won several tournaments, including the AMC championship. Smith's standout individual performances included the Missouri Valley Spring Invite, where he set a 54-hole program record with his score of 201.

The records wouldn't stop there as Smith led the field at the NAIA national championships, with his two-round score of 134. That tied the NAIA national championship record for best 36-hole score alongside two past golfers.

His performance would fall off a little, leading to his second-place finish at a score of 284. That was still the second-best 72-hole score in William Woods history, trailing the one set by David Houlding at the 2015 national championships by four strokes. Houlding also finished as the runner-up in that tourney, giving Smith the tie for the best national championships finish in William Woods history.

Smith finished in 13th place at the 2019 national championships. The Owls tied for 11th at this year's national championships and tied for ninth at the 2019 event.
