The senior from Ringgold, Ga., earned fifth-place finishes at two tournaments in the month. He placed fifth at the Cliff Keen Las Vegas Invitational on Dec. 2, going 6-1 with a pin and two major decisions.

At the end of the month, Keefe finished fifth at the Southern Scuffle. He went 5-2 in the event with a pin and two majors.
