Rossland golfer Brenan Moroney will be teeing it up at the collegiate level next year.

The Rossland Secondary School student has signed a letter of intent to play golf at Missouri Valley College (MVC) in Marshall, Mo., in September.

Moroney has consistently been among the top junior golfers in the area.

He has represented Zone 1 in five straight B.C. Junior championships, has been the overall winner in Zone 1 and is currently a member of the RSS golf team, which will compete at the provincial championships next week at the Birchbank Golf Club.

The 2012-13 MVC Vikings golf team featured six Canadians including Josh Coletti of Nelson, another graduate of the Zone 1 West junior golf program.

Coletti, a junior, was named to the Heart of America Athletic Conference (HAAC) all-conference team this year.

The school is a member of the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA).
