Tanner Voisard also fired a 81 (his personal best), which is the lowest Sectional Tournament score for a freshman in Houston history!

17. Match vs. St. Henry Team Score = 168 Season Record = 11 - 5
The Varsity Team wrapped up their regular season in style with a big 19 stroke win over St. Henry (our first win over St. Henry in over a decade).

16. Match vs. Fort Recovery Team Score = 172 Season Record = 10 - 5

Parker Herrick was medalist for the match with the third lowest score of his career (38), and Tanner Cooper shot his second lowest round of the season (45). Parker's round of 38 is more impressive when you consider the rain & wind made the course play about 3 shots more difficult last night (meaning his 38 is about equivalent to a 35 on a night of normal weather).
15. SCAL Finals Teams We Beat = Jackson Center, Russia, Fairlawn
The Varsity Golf Team capped-off a record breaking season with a 4th place finish in the SCAL Finals. This 4th place finish ties for our best finishing placement in the SCAL in school history (according the records available since 1993).

Ethan Lukey finished his record-breaking sophomore year as the 5th lowest stroke average in the entire SCAL (First Team All-SCAL). Ethan was the only underclassman to earn First Team All-SCAL, and unofficially won the Sophomore Player of the Year for 2021 (lowest stroke average of any sophomore in Shelby County).
Tanner Voisard finished the season with the second lowest freshman scoring average in the entire SCAL, and will certain complete for the lowest average again in the coming years.
Ethan Funk, Tanner Voisard and Parker Herrick all narrowly missed All-County Honors by fewer than 12 strokes. Tanner and Parker will be strong contenders for SCAL Honors in 2022.

The Varsity Golf Team improved to 8-1 on the season with a league match win over Jackson Center. The match took place over two days, due to a rainout after 6 holes on Thursday. Ethan Lukey led the team with a 39, and Ethan Funk added a smooth 41.
