SEATTLE - (Dec. 5) The Seattle U men's golf team has signed two new players for the 2018-19 season. Head Coach Marc Chandonnet announced the signing of Nathan Cogswell of Renton, Wash., and Jack Rahon of Irvine, Calif., during the early signing period.
Rahon attends Servite High School in Anaheim, Calif. Rahon carried a match scoring average of 36.1 and lead his team to their second CIF division title in his four years. In 2016 and 2017 Rahon was named to the First Team All Trinity League and in 2017 was on the First Team All-Orange County. Rahon's career low score is 67.
"Jack embodies all of the attributes we search for in a student athlete," Chandonnet said. "He is an extremely hard worker who has a love for the game and a support system around him that we believe is first class. I have no doubt in my mind that he will be an amazing contributor to the Seattle University community both inside and outside the classroom. We are lucky to have such a fine young man join our program and it will be my honor to support his growth for four years starting in 2018. I believe we are assembling a team that can compete at the Championship level and it should be a fun ride."
Cogswell joins Seattle U from Kentwood High School in Covington, Wash. Cogswell was First Team All-League in each of his four years on the varsity golf team. Cogswell sports a career match scoring average of 36. 33 and finished his 2017 season with a 34.8 scoring average. In his career Cogswell had won 24 medals.
"Nathan hails from Kent, Wash.," Chandonnet said. "He just recently won the RMJGT Jr. tour event this past week at one of our home facilities, Chambers Bay. Nathan is a young man I've had my eyes on now for many years! He might not realize how long I've followed his progress but I remember starting to watch him quite sometime ago at the State High School Championships. I've always loved his athletic ability and see that he has huge potential in regard to supporting this program as we try to defend our WAC Championship title in coming years. Our recruiting process really takes a deep look into a players work ethic, passion for the game and support system. Nathan has all of this going for him & with his length, his commitment and his willingness to leave it all out on the table I'm confident this will serve him well starting in 2018."
The current Redhawks golfers will resume play on Jan. 29th in Ventura County, Calif., for the Waves Challenge.
