The  Boys Varsity Golf team made school history on April 23 by winning the Greater Kansas City Suburban Conference White Division Championship for the first time. Third year Head Golf Coach Jon Gregory is proud of the team for accomplishing their goal.

“This is the first time in school history that we’ve won conference and the first time in school history that we’ve had a conference winner,” Coach Gregory said. “That’s the goal we set back in March 18 when we started. They worked really hard to achieve that goal all season.”

Competing against six other schools, the Indians finished the conference at 1st Place with a score of 377. Coach Gregory believes that this is one of our school’s best golf teams in its history.

“Good golf players need patience and an internal drive to get better,” Coach Gregory said. “This is probably the most talented group that we’ve had in a while.”

Sophomore Mallecki Terrazas earned the individual Conference Championship by firing an 89. He thinks that part of the victory came from luck.

“I just tried to play the shots I know and not force anything and it just happened,” Terrazas said. “I just kinda won.”

Golf is Terrazas’ favorite sport. He enjoys playing golf because of its randomness.

“I like how there’s a different shot to play every time,” Terrazas said. “You never really get the same shot so it’s pretty diverse.”  

Senior Devin Morrow shot a 91. He loved playing at the conference meet and appreciates Coach Gregory’s coaching.

“I loved it, it was really exciting,” Morrow said. “Gregory is pretty good at golf. He’s taught me a lot.”

The team did not advance to the Sectional meet after the Class 4 District 7 meet, but Terrazas did advance as an individual. The team finished in 8th with a score of 450. Terrazas came in 24th with a score of 97 to advance to the Class 4 Section 4 meet.

Terrazas shot a 91 and tied for 38th at the Sectional meet. He missed advancing to State by 6 strokes.
