Pitt Meadows golfer signs with Seattle University

Pitt Meadows golfer Ryan Hunt has signed with the Seattle University Redhawks.

Pitt Meadows golfer Ryan Hunt will continue his career with the Seattle University Redhawks in 2015-2016.

Pitt Meadows golfer Ryan Hunt has signed with the Seattle University Redhawks.

Hunt is one of the top junior golfers in Canada, competing for Team Canada at both the North America Cup in Bluffton, S.C., and the Euro Junior Golf Cup at historic St. Andrews Golf Club in Scotland.

He helped Team Canada win both competitions, posting a 6-2-1 match play record in the two competitions combined.

In mid-July, Hunt finished in sixth place at the Maple Leaf Junior Tour/PGA British Columbia Junior Tournament.

He has already graduated from Thomas Haney Secondary School, where he received the Governor General’s Academic Medal for earning the highest grade point average in his class. Hunt finished with a 4.0 grade point average, as he earned straight As throughout his time in secondary school.

“Ryan is a very strong athletic competitor who is also tops in his class academically,” said head coach Marc Chandonnet.

“We are very excited to add him to our roster in the fall of 2015, and we believe Ryan already embodies all of the traits our institution strives to instill in our students. Therefore, we see him fitting in immediately in all areas, and we are confident he will have a great impact as a student-athlete.”

Seattle University is a catholic institution with some 7,500 students, and has a reputation for strong academic programs.

The school announced Ryan Hunt signed a national letter of intent during the November signing period to join the Redhawk golf program starting in the 2015-16 academic year.

The Seattle University men’s golf team finished its fall season with back-to-back second place finishes at tournaments hosted by the University of Utah and Georgetown University.
