COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – The Mountain West announced Thursday afternoon the members of the 2011-12 all-conference golf team, and Colorado State senior Zahkai Brown was included on the list of the league’s top-10 performers.
Brown, the 2007 Colorado 5A state champion at Pomona High School in Arvada, was named the 2009 Freshman of the Year in the Mountain West and bookends his collegiate career with this selection to the 2012 all-Mountain West team. He also becomes one of seven CSU golfers - including older brother Zen Brown - to earn multiple postseason recognitions in the MW’s 13-year existence.
Other Rams to earn multiple postseason awards from the MW are: Martin Laird (2002, 2003 and 2004), Nolan Martin (2003 and 2004), Zen Brown (2007 and 2009), Dustin Morris (2008 and 2009), Bryce Hanstad (2008 and 2010) and Ryan Peterson (2010 and 2011).
Brown, who competed in each of Colorado State’s nine regular-season tournaments, closed the season slate in impressive fashion with a first-place finish at the PING Cougar Classic, April 27-28 in Provo, Utah. He then finished as the Rams’ top performer last weekend at the Mountain West Championship in Tucson, Ariz., coming in just two strokes out of first place in a tie for second.
The Rams, led by Brown and fellow senior Mike Wuertz, will once again return to the NCAA Regionals, appearing in the national championship qualifier for the sixth straight time, and the 12th time in the last 13 seasons overall. CSU will tee off in the Bowling Green Regional hosted by Western Kentucky University in Bowling Green, Ky., May 17-19, in search of a top-5 regional finish to advance to the NCAA championships for a second straight season.
