Men's Golf Adds Top Recruit
BOISE, Idaho Boise State University men’s golf Head Coach Kevin Burton announced the signing of Winnipeg, Manitoba, native Scott Loewen, Wednesday.

Loewen is a junior college transfer from Odessa College in Odessa, Texas. In 2005 Loewen earned NJCAA All-America honors, finishing runner-up individually at the NJCAA National Championships and leading Odessa to the team title. The Wranglers followed-up their national championship with a third place finish in 2006.

“We took a big step this year, and bringing in a student-athlete like Scott is another step in the right direction,” Burton said. “Scott has proven to be a competitor and I am proud to have him as a member of this team.”

Loewen recorded three tournament victories and posted a scoring-average of 71.9 while at Odessa, leading the Wranglers to 18 team titles, two conference championships, two regional championships, and two state championships. He also posted 23 top 10 finishes and was named All-Region and All-Conference in each of his two seasons.

“Scott has been a pleasure to coach and an integral part of our success,” Odessa Head Coach and defending two-time NJCAA National Coach of the Year Paul Chavez said. “He brings a great attitude to the golf course and truly loves the game. His talent is unmatched and he will be sorely missed. Boise State is getting a great student-athlete.”
