FORT COLLINS, Colo. - Colorado State women's golfer Christina Spinzig will be named Colorado Women's Golf Association Player of the Year later this month.
Spinzig, a senior from Evergreen, Colo., will be honored on Nov. 24 during the 2013 Colorado Golf Awards Brunch held at Pinehurst Country Club in Denver, Colo.
"I had a good summer of playing and I worked really hard to elevate my game," Spinzig said. "I was pretty happy to earn this award."
The Rams senior golfer earned the CWGA award after finishing as the points leader with 235, beating out her competition by over 40 points. Spinzig won her first Colorado Women's Golf Association Match Play Championship on her way to this honor, as she defeated Michaela Breit, who plays collegiately at Colorado State-Pueblo, 10 and 9. This was the largest margin of victory in a CWGA Open since 2005.
Spinzig also had a strong performance in the CWGA Stroke Play finishing in fourth place.
"Christina had a really strong summer and this is an award that she definitely deserved," first-year Head Coach Annie Young said.
The Rams wrapped up fall play on Oct. 31 in Hawai'i where Spinzig had her best round of the season, tying for the best finish of her career at 11th and shooting a 54-hole total of 226.
