Gaspar signs with University of Missouri-Kansas City

TWIN FALLS, Idaho ( KMVT / KSVT ) Starting in 2011, the Bruins won every 4A boys state championship, a streak that lasted for years.

In 2016, here comes newcomer Daniel Gaspar, joining the squad from the Midwest. Gaspar fit right in, posting the lowest score on the team and helped Twin Falls to its sixth consecutive title.

At the 2017 championships, Gaspar took fifth individually and the Bruins finished third.

But it was his efforts at the national stage this summer that got him noticed. With Division I schools after him, on Wednesday Gaspar signed with the University of Missouri-Kansas City.

The Kangaroo coaching staff wanted him following his performance at the Big I National Championship where he finished 33rd overall.

"They have a really good business program which I will be going into. their team is really tough overall and they play a really tough schedule, go to Hawaii, California and Arizona, some really nice areas," explained Gaspar.

Magic Valley Junior Golf Foundation's Zach Abels said, "he's a special talent as far as kids that have come out of this area, he has a lot of good tools, works hard, we'll see how far he wants to go with it."

Gaspar had interest from the University of Kansas, Washington State University and the University of Wyoming.

The Roos compete in the Western Athletic Conference.
