“Michael is everything we're looking for to represent SFU Golf,” said head coach Matthew Steinbach. “Not only is he a phenomenal golfer and an excellent student but he is also actively involved in giving back to the community. On the golf course, Michael has demonstrated exceptional results in competition and with his skillset, he has a very high ceiling.”

Crisologo was a part of Team BC at the 2018 Canadian Junior Championship as well as the Junior Americas Cup Championship. Individually, the Richmond native has had great results in 2018, placing in a tie for fourth at the BC Junior Boys Championship and the Golf Canada Future Links Fall Series. In addition, he earned a share of 13th place at the Eddie Hogan Cup Matches and finished t-22nd in the Canadian Junior Boys tournament.

Crisologo has been selected to the President's Honour Society at Vancouver College since Grade 9 for achieving a 90+ percent average each school year. He is also active in the community, including volunteering at The Door is Open - a drop-in ministry that provides food, clothing, counselling, shelter services and referrals, and a warm and safe environment in the heart of Vancouver's Downtown Eastside.

 "I chose SFU because of the many great things I've heard about the University on both its athletic and academic programs,” he said. “It has always been a goal of mine to compete in the NCAA for golf and I'm grateful SFU has given me this opportunity. I'm stoked to see what next year has in store!"

Crisologo will be majoring in Kinesiology at SFU.
