Mendez was named the Big Ten Freshman of the Year and selected to the All-Big Ten First Team after tying for medalist honors at the Big Ten Championships. He was the first freshman Big Ten champion since 2009. Mendez received PING All-Region honors after tying for ninth place at the NCAA Raleigh Regional.
