The UBC Okanagan men’s golf team capped off the 2017 collegiate golf season with a silver-medal performance at the CCAA national championship at the Royal Ashburn Golf Club in Oshawa, Ont.
With a four-day team score of 1224 (+72), the Heat finished second only to the University of the Fraser Valley Cascades (1208).
The Heat, who followed up a PACWEST silver with a second at nationals, finished two shots ahead of the Humber Hawks.
The three-time PACWEST all-star was also named to the national all-star team following his runner-up performance. Admired by everyone on the team for his hard work and competitiveness, Casorso will be greatly missed by everyone in the Heat golf program
Rounding out the Heat team is Nik Federko (16th), Casey Sullivan (23rd), Ryley Johnson (26th) and Oliver Rizun (39th).
