FLC recruit switches state corners and golf teams

From one corner to the other, the Fort Lewis College men’s golf team has added another Coloradan.

Trinidad State Junior College’s Joshua Woodworth will swing for the Skyhawks next fall after two years with the Trojans. He earned first team all-district honors a year ago.

“I watched him play in our first tournament of the year at the Peaks Classic,” said FLC head coach Bud Andersen, a 16-year veteran at the helm of the Skyhawks’ program. “He won the individual title in very tricky conditions and has a good demeanor on the course. He has the potential of being a really good player.

“It’s going to hurt losing (senior) Charlie Laudermilk, but Josh has the right stuff to move into the starting lineup and make an immediate impact. He is just a good kid and a good student.”

At Trinidad State, Woodworth is a Dean’s List student.

At Palmer Ridge High School in Monument, he was a three-year captain of the Bears’ golf team, a regional champion and an all-state honorable mention selection, in addition to playing basketball and lacrosse.

The Skyhawks’ golf team won a pair of tournaments this fall including the Oredigger Invitational and the Grizzly Kick-Starter and finished second in the Peaks Classic. Their spring schedule has yet to be released.
