Former BCC Golfer Wins Platinum Coast Invitational

September 17, 2012 - Former Brevard Community College golfer Justin Kalanquin won last weekend's 52nd edition of the Platinum Coast Invitational at the Rockledge Country Club.

Kalanquin birdied the first hole of a playoff to defeat two-time defending champion Kevin Altenhof.

Kalanquin, of Grand Forks, ND, played the 2011-2012 season for BCC. He is now a junior at Melbourne's Florida Institute of Technology and a member of the golf team at his new College.

His efforts resonated with BCC head coach Jamie Howell.

"I wish I could have had Justin for two years instead of only one," Howell said. "Justin set an example everyday with his actions whether it was striving for excellence in the classroom or being the consummate teammate.

"He was always on time, always prepared and never any excuses. Justin's win at the Platinum Coast Invitational is the result of all the hard work and dedication he commits to his everyday life."
