Former Catalina Foothills golfer Gavin Cohen named UA Student-Athlete of the Month

Gavin Cohen (UA)

The University of Arizona athletic department named golf standout Gavin Cohen (Catalina Foothills) Student-Athlete of the Month for January.

Jennifer Mewes, Cohen’s counselor commented via news release, “Gavin excels both on the classroom and on the course.” Cohen is a pre-business student in the Eller College of Management

This list will be updated all year in an effort to recognize all former local prep stars who have gone on to achieve either academic and/or athletic awards at the next level. These are not high school awards but collegiate and professional recognitions. NOT CHAMPIONSHIPS. If you are aware of anything I have missed along the way, please let me know.

We recognized 144 athletes in 2017.
