First and foremost, I got a text message last night that compels me to issue a profuse apology to the Men’s and Women’s Golf Teams for lack of coverage. All I can do is claim ignorance, as I know that Golf has a fall competition time, but with this being the middle of the recruiting season for Football and the home stretch for Basketball, I just flat out forgot that the Lion Linksters are out there in the a brutally cold weather, battling the elements to bring home some glory, so my apologies for leaving you guys out and to start to make up for it here is some news golf related.
First I want to notate the signing class for next year.
Celeste Emeott was a four year letterman at Frisco Liberty High School. She played a key role in helping the Lady Redhawks to the program’s first-ever appearance in the state tournament. Emeott becomes the first golfer in Liberty program history to play golf collegiately, which pretty cool that this new booming school sent their first golfer bound for college to our institution.
Katy Goen was a three-time all-district pick from Wichita Falls High School who captured the 2012 District 5-4A championship. Goen helped lead the Coyotes to the district championship in 2011 while placing second in 2012 as she was also a three-time North Texas PGA Player of the Year.
Su Son is one of two sighnees from Colleyville Heritage High School. She was a four-year letterwinner at Colleyville Heritage High School, being named the program’s MVP in 2013. She has been a key figure in helping the Lady Panthers to five-straight district championships, placing fifth at the 2013 District 6-5A tournament.
Emily White is the other CHHS golfer to sign with the Lions. She was a four year letterwinner also. Voted the Lady Panthers’ Most Improved Player in 2013, White shot a career-low 74 at the regional meet after helping Heritage continue its dominance of District 6-5A, winning five-straight district titles.
Congratulations to Dr. Louie Bledsoe on another outstanding class that he signed! Men’s class tomorrow. Speaking of Men’s Golf……
Congrats to the Male Linksters for their second place finish and Jay Cox for winning the individual title. The tourney was cut short due to weather being less than desirable down in Laredo, but the Paris, Texas native was in complete control from start to finish, so got to give credit where credit is due.
Both teams travel to Kingsville to take the Javelinas of TAMU-Kingsville tomorrow. Open thread will be up later tomorrow.
