Shoop named RMAC golfer of the week

By Doug Fitzgerald published September 24, 2009

Chris Shoop of the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs was named the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference men's golfer of week, the conference announced Thursday.

The junior from Phoenix tied for individual medalist honors at the 2009 RMAC Men's Golf Fall Tournament, which was played Tuesday at Cougar Canyon Golf Links in Trinidad, Colo. Shoop shot a 2-under par 70 to tie Colorado Mines' Jim Knous. The Mountain Lions' team score of 296 was a full seven strokes better than second-place Colorado Mines and nine strokes ahead of third-place Western New Mexico.

With the win, UCCS put itself in the lead for the 2009-10 RMAC golf championship. The aggregate scores of the fall and spring championships will determine the conference winner. The RMAC Spring Championship will be played April 19-20 at Poston Butte Golf Club in Florence, Ariz.
