A Winning Tradition

  • Two Division III PING All-Region Team
  • Six All-NWC Athletes 

NEWBERG --- The Northwest Conference announced this week's NWC Men's Golf Student-Athlete of the Week, as George Fox sophomore Mason Koch earned the honor.

Koch, a sophomore from Auburn, Washington, earns his first NWC Student-Athlete of the Week honor on the season. Koch won the Sunshine Invite by one stroke with an even-par 34-74=108. The tournament was cut down to 27-holes after the first day produced a frost delay and darkness – forcing the front nine to count as the official first round. This marks the first tournament win of his career.

Koch helped the Bruins open the 2018 season with a second-place finish. The Bruins will compete next at the Willamette Cup March 17-18 at the Trysting Tree Golf Course.
