GREENSBORO, N.C. – UNCG freshman men's golfer Taylor Coalson (Dobson, N.C./North Surry) has been named this week's Blue Chip Performer sponsored by Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Carolina. The Blue Chip Performer is chosen weekly from all sports in season and runs throughout the 2012-13 UNCG Athletics season.

Coalson became the first Spartan in program history to earn Southern Conference Freshman of the Year honors after leading all rookies in the SoCon this season with a 74.19 stroke average and posting four top 10 finishes on the year. He capped his stellar freshman campaign with a second place finish at the 2013 SoCon Championships, leading the Spartans to a fifth place finish overall.

Coalson finished two shots out of the championship lead with a 1-over par 217. He opened the tournament with an even-par 72 before posting a 3-over par 75 in round two. He moved up the leaderboard on the final day, posting a third round-best 2-under par 70. His 217 score is his third lowest of the season and he was in the top four of the standings from start to finish as he hit 11 birdies in the three-day event.

Coalson's second place finish marked the seventh time in the last eight years that UNCG has placed an individual in the top five of the SoCon Championships. It also marked the Spartans' top finish since Ryan Heisey placed second in the 2010 tournament as a senior.
