JONESBORO, Ark. (7/14/16) – Arkansas State head men’s golf coach Mike Hagen announced Thursday that Kevin Kramarski, who competed in a 2015 NCAA Division I Regional tournament while spending the last two seasons at Iona College, has signed to play with the Red Wolves beginning in the 2016-17 season.
Kramarski, named the 2015 Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference (MAAC) Rookie of the Year, most recently completed his sophomore season with nine top-15 finishes, including a third-place showing at the MAAC Championship with a 3-over 219.
Currently ranked 2,764 in the World Amateur Golf Ranking (WAGR), Kramarski won the individual MAAC title as a freshman and went on to place 65th in the NCAA’s Division I New Haven Regional. Kramarski also claimed the Monmouth Invitational championship during his initial season with the Gaels.
“I’m thrilled to add Kevin to our program,” said Hagen. “He is a quality player who will bring experience and maturity to the program.”
Prior to his time at Iona, Kramarski was a four-year letterman at St. Joseph’s Preparatory School (Philadelphia, Pa.), helping lead the school to the PIAA District and Regional championships to go along with a third-place finish at the State Championship. He also captured the Philadelphia Individual League championship and was named to the First Team All-Catholic League twice.
A Cinnaminson, N.J., native, he finished runner-up at the 2013 Golf Association of Philadelphia (GAP) Junior Boys Championship and qualified for the Philadelphia Amateur Championship. Kramarski was a two-time selection to represent the GAP in the Williamson Cup, which matches 10 state and regional golf associations in a four-man team format. He finished tied for fifth individually in 2013 and tied for 34th in the 2012 event.
Additionally, Kramarski became the youngest player to ever qualify for the Philadelphia Amateur Championship. In 2011, he recorded three victories on the Philadelphia Junior Tour and one on the Junior Golf Association Tour.
