Silver medal, all-star recognition for Kelowna’s Casorso

James Casorso wins the cumulative season PACWEST silver medal in golf.

UBC Okanagan golfer James Casorso closed out the PACWEST sesason in Parksville with a sparkling round of 66.

Clutch golfing by the Heat’s James Casorso on the final day of the PACWEST season led to a provincial silver medal for the four-year member of the UBC Okanagan men’s golf team.

After a shooting his poorest round of the conference season on Saturday in Parksville, Casorso rebounded with a 66 on the final day to rise four places in the standings and finish with the second lowest cumulative score (576).

Casorso also carded a (77-66, 143) to finish second in the final tournament of the season at the Morningstar Club, following up the win he had a week earlier at Westwood Plateau.

Casorso’s 66 on Sunday tied for lowest round on the men’s side for the entire PACWEST season.

He finished five strokes back of Jacob Vanderpas of the Langara Falcons in the individual season standings.

Casroso was also named to the PACWEST all-star team for the second straight season.

He’ll travel to Charlottetown, PEI to compete as an individual at the 2016 PING CCAA national championships held at the Fox Meadow Golf Course and hosted by Holland College.

The national tournament runs Oct.18 to 21.

On the women’s side, the Heat finished with the provincial silver medal.

Freshman golfer McKenna Lesiuk finished fourth overall in the PACWEST.  Emily Adams, Jessica Kozak and Lauren Siemers were the other members of the team which combined for a season score of 1347, 59 strokes back of champion Fraser Valley over the four tournaments.
