Former Colorado Springs School Golfer to Join Mountain Lions
University of Colorado at Colorado Springs coach Phil Trujillo announced Tuesday that former Colorado Springs School golfer Taylor Stamp will join the Mountain Lions for the 2008-09 season.
Stamp will be an incoming sophomore at UCCS. He played his freshman season at Division I Southern Utah.
Stamp saw considerable action with the Thunderbirds this past season, highlighted by a 6-under par performance at the Agua Caliente Collegiate Invitational, hosted by Air Force, on Nov. 9-10. In his only other tournament in his native Colorado, he shot a solid 5-over par at the Ron Moore Invitational in Denver on March 21-23.
He also played in the Shootout in Angel Park in Hawaii, the Braveheart Classic in Riverside, Calif., and the Pat Hicks Thunderbird Invitational, Southern Utah's home tournament.
Stamp won the 2007 Southern Colorado Men's Amateur at Walking Stick Golf Club in Pueblo. He was named to the first-team all-area golf team as a junior in 2005 by the Gazette, but missed his senior season with a broken arm.
He also lettered in lacrosse and basketball at the Colorado Springs School.
