May 11, 2010

SAN DIEGO - San Diego State sophomore golfer J.J. Spaun (San Dimas, Calif.) has been named to the Mountain West all-conference team for his performances thus far during the 2009-10 season, the league office announced Tuesday afternoon. It is the first career honor for Spaun and he becomes the 10th different Aztec and fifth SDSU sophomore to garner all-MWC honors overall in the league's 11-year history.

Spaun currently leads San Diego State in season stroke average with a 72.00 mark to rank eighth in the league. He has finished in the top 15 on five occasions in 2010, including a victory at the Thunderbird Invitational in Arizona and a third-place performance at the U.S. Intercollegiate at Stanford. Spaun garnered his first career MWC player-of-the-month honor following those two April tournaments.

The San Dimas, Calif., native recorded a career-low 205 at the Thunderbird Invite, tying for fifth-best in school history for a 54-hole event. Spaun also fired a career-low of 66 in Arizona and has a team-best 14 sub-par rounds on the year.

Spaun will be one of five Aztec golfers and 75 players overall at next week's NCAA Men's Golf San Diego Regional at Carlton Oaks Golf Club in Santee, Calif., May 20-22. The 54-hole event is free to the public.
