A spectacular rookie campaign has earned Ben Whiton all-Canadian honours.
The first-year golfer for the University of the Fraser Valley golf team earned the distinction on Monday as the Canadian Colleges Athletic Association announced the all-Canadians ahead of the national championships.
The competition runs this week at the Royal Ashburn Golf Club in Whitby, Ont.
Whiton — who graduated from Walnut Grove Secondary in June, helping the Gators win the provincial golf title — finished second to teammate Daniel Campbell in the PacWest men’s race. Whiton twice finished runner-up in competitions and never placed below sixth.
He was one of four Cascades to earn all-Canadian honours, alongside Campbell, Emery Bardock and Hannah Dirksen.
