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.
