Prugh Named To All-Pac-10 Second-Team
April 26, 2007
WALNUT CREEK, CALIF. -- Washington senior golfer Alex Prugh was named to the All-Pac-10 second team the conference office announced Thursday. The All-Pac-10 team is based upon a vote of the league's coaches.
Prugh, a native of Spokane, Wash., earned his third-straight nod to the All-Pac-10 team after earning first-team honors last season and second-team acclaim in 2005. Prugh has been the Huskies' top player all season long, coming in as Washington's top finisher in 10 of 11 tournaments. He leads UW with a career-low 71.83 stroke average that ranks fifth in UW history. Prugh is also tied for fourth all-time with 12 career top-10 finishes in his Husky career.
This year, Prugh won his first collegiate tournament, sharing co-medalist honors at the Oregon Duck Invitational (March 26-27). Prugh finished the tournament at 2-under 214, carding rounds of 4-under 68, 4-over 76 and 2-under 70. He bested his previous career-high finish of runner-up three times: at the 2004 Big Ten/Pac-10 Challenge, the 2005 Gopher Invitational and the 2006 National Invitational. Prugh also set a new career-low 54-hole score of 201 at the Hawaii-Hilo Intercollegiate (Feb. 7-9), where he also matched his career-low single round score of 65. Prugh was Washington's top finisher at this week's Pac-10 Championships tying for 16th.
Arizona State's Niklas Lemke and USC's Jamie Lovemark were named the Pac-10 Co-Golfers of the Year and Lovemark was also named the Freshman of the Year. Stanford's Conrad Ray was selected the Pac-10 Coach of the Year.
