SEATTLE – (June 8) Quinton Borseth, a dual-sport athlete hailing from Stanwood High School in Stanwood, Wash., joins the Seattle University men's golf signing class of 2017, Head Coach Marc Chandonnet announced Thursday.
Borseth starred in both golf and basketball, and in the classroom, at Stanwood HS, recently placing third in the 2017 3A WIAA State golf championship, earning his school's Scholar-Athlete award and was named class valedictorian.
"Quinton is a player we had our eye on from the very beginning thanks to our former assistant coach Keith Larson," said Chandonnet. "'Q' as his friends and family refer to him comes from an amazing family who is very supportive. He's an extremely talented athlete and a hard worker as evidenced by his play in the State Championship this year and also highlighted by a 13-under par finish last year as a junior in high school at the Rosaeurs Championship, which is a field full of the best local amateurs and pros. We are beyond excited about adding him and his family to the Seattle U Redhawk community. We are the lucky ones and I am confident that Quinton will prove that over the next four years."
Borseth helped lead Stanwood HS to three 3A Wesco League championships and three 3A Wesco District championships during his prep career. The four-time first team all-league selection capped his prep career on May 23-24 by finishing third in the state tournament with a two-round score of two-under par 142 (68-74).
Along with his success on the golf course, Borseth also played three years of varsity basketball. The Spartans won three league titles, two district tiles and were a 3A Elite Eight State participant in 2015-16.
Borseth joins three other Washington natives - Nick Baker, Ben Gruher and Gabe Spach - to make up Chandonnet's 2017 recruiting class. Baker (Cle Elum-Roslyn HS) recently wrapped up his third straigh 1A WIAA State individual title, Gruher (Union HS) placed 26th overall in the 4A WIAA state tournament and Spach (Roosevelt HS) tied for 10th in the 3A WIAA state tournament.
