Charles Page High School senior and OSSAA 6A State Runner-Up golf star Carson Griggs signed a letter of intent Wednesday morning to play for the University of Denver (DU).
DU is a four-year private university participating in NCAA Division One athletics. The Pioneers have been members of The Summit League since 2013 and they placed sixth in the conference championship this past season. Their last conference title was in 2014 and their last NCAA Tournament appearance was in 2011. They are led by Head Coach Erik Billinger in his fourth season.
Griggs is coming off a second-place finish in the OSSAA 6A State Championship last May, finishing just two strokes behind the Champion in a field of 72 competitors. He shot four strokes under par in a three-round tournament at the Golf Club of Edmond. He tied for 20th place as a sophomore and 19th place as a freshman.
Last year Griggs took first place at the 6A State Preview at Karsten Creek in Stillwater, but the Championship location was relocated due to spring flooding at its usual site. He also won the Sand Springs Invitational and the Frontier Valley Conference Championship, and placed second at the Bartlesville Bruin Invitational.
