As one of the few college golfers from The Last Frontier, Kevin Daniels of Anchorage is proving to be on par with some of the best in the nation.

The 5-foot-8 senior for American International College was named Northeast-10 Men’s Golf Athlete of the Week after a sizzling performance at the recent New England Intercollegiate Golf Association Championship.

Daniels, of South High fame, finished second overall and first among Division II golfers at the 77th annual tournament in South Easton, Mass., with a 36-hole, 71-76—147 total.

He finished just one stroke behind the winner from Holy Cross.

Daniels was in a three-way tie for the lead after 18 holes. His runner-up finish led American International to a seventh-place team finish.

The tournament ended the fall portion of the 2011-12 season. The team will get back into the swing of things in March.
