Announced by the league office this week, a pair of Cal Lutheran men’s golfers garnered All-Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (SCIAC) honors. Senior Barret McGinnis and freshman Keegan Sheard were both named to the First Team while Sheard was also awarded the Ken Sherman Newcomer of the Year.
Throughout the school year, much of the day-to-day focus is directed towards the successes of the Cal Lutheran athletics programs, but on Saturday morning, a group of 152 student-athletes, with their families and friends, gathered inside of the Gilbert Arena for the 12th CLU Scholar-Athlete Society Induction ceremony where academics were praised.
The Cal Lutheran men’s golf team wrapped up competition at the Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (SCIAC) Championships on Tuesday at Oak Valley Golf Club with a three-day total of 893 (+29) to finish in a tie with Redlands for third place.
Freshman Keegan Sheardfinished as the individual champion at the Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (SCIAC) No. 2 tournament after carding a 36-hole CLU record with a 136 (-8) and shot the lowest round in Division III this year with a 63 (-9) on Saturday at Los Serranos Country Club. Overall, the Cal Lutheran men's golf team came away with a fourth place finish.
When he was deciding what college to go to, Alex Hird had opportunities to go to larger schools, but it was the comfort that the Cal Lutheran campus and community offered that was most intriguing to the current golfer.
Cal Lutheran is one of 450 Division III institutions around the country. During the week of April 6-12, all members will host Division III Week, aimed at celebrating what those schools have to offer student-athletes in the classroom, in the field of play and in the community during the 41st year of the NCAA.
