Connor O’Dell of Maple Ridge was the PACWest athlete of the week for his performance in college golf for the University of the Fraser Valley.

O’Dell placed first overall at the KPU Invitational last weekend, shooting a combined two-day total of 135 (-9) and beating second-place finisher (and teammate) Zach Olson by a full five strokes.

O’Dell, out of Maple Ridge Christian, also won the final PACWest event of last year’s season, and is proving to be an asset for the UFV team.

Thanks in a large part to O’Dell, the Cascades men’s golf team finished first overall at the KPU Invitational, and also swept the podium in individual competition. The Cascades are the defending PACWEST and CCAA champions.
