Kupcho named Colorado's Junior Player of the Year
GREELEY – The Colorado Golf Association has announced that Northern Colorado freshman Steven Kupcho was named this year’s CGA Junior Player of the Year.
Steven Kupcho, a Westminster native, finished his junior career on a high note. Shortly after winning his second consecutive Colorado Junior PGA Championship, Kupcho cruised to a six-shot victory in the CGA Junior Stroke Play.
In addition, the freshman placed seventh in the CGA Stroke Play and tied for second in the CJGA Tournament of Champions.
In his first collegiate tournament this fall, Kupcho immediately made an impact, as he finished tied for 12th in the Battle of the Tetons. He tied with fellow freshman Charlie Mroz for the low score for the Bears in the tournament. Kupcho shot a 219 (+3) in that tournament.
Undoubtedly, Kupcho will look to carry the momentum taken from his first fall with Northern Colorado and turn it into a productive spring. The Bears kick off their 2012 schedule on March 16 in Tucson, Ariz. when they participate in the National Invitational Tournament.
