A Richmond golf player was named player of the year after his win in the Great Northwest Athletic Conference (GNAC) men's team championship.

Michael Crisologo, a Simon Fraser University (SFU) student, has been named the 2024 GNAC Men's Player of the Year after winning the 2024 GNAC Men's Golf Championship individual title on the Coeur d’Alene Resort Golf Course in Idaho.

Crisologo won the event with a 13-under-par 200 with one shot off the scoring record of 199.

He is the sixth Simon Fraser Red Leaf athlete to earn the Player of the Year honour -- a perfect present on his 23rd birthday.

Crisologo led the conference with an average of 72 strokes per round and is the first golfer from SFU to earn the title since his older brother Chris Crisologo, was named the GNAC Player of the Year for three consecutive seasons from 2016 to 2018.

The SFU men's team is heading to the NCAA Regional Championships held in Las Cruces, New Mexico from May 9 to 11.
