Former Post Falls standout Glenn

joins Vandal menís golf team

MOSCOW ó Post Falls High School graduate Joseph Glenn is set to join the Idaho menís golf program.

Glenn was the 2016 5A Region 1 champion as a senior before serving a two-year church mission. He will enroll in the spring and be eligible to compete immediately as a freshman.

ďIím really excited to welcome Joseph to our team this spring,Ē Idaho coach David Nuhn said. ďI recruited him out of high school but he was committed to serving his mission so we left the option open once he returned. He showed the same level of skill at an event this fall and I am confident Joseph will contribute to our team on and off the course right away.Ē

Glenn led Post Falls to its best run in boysí golf in school history. The Trojans took fourth and fifth at the Idaho 5A state tournament in his final two years, the programís top all-time finishes. Glenn posted the best scoring average on the team each of his final three years, including the lowest scoring average in the region as a senior. He won the regional title as a senior by four strokes before going on to finish in a tie for sixth at state.

On the junior golf circuit, Glenn picked up wins in Arizona, Idaho and Washington.

Glenn plans to pursue a degree in finance at Idaho.
