Williams and Shoulders Recognized


 MCHS Schoolboy Austin Williams was recognized as Outstanding Player in District 10 A-AA golf this week. Also Coach Beverly Shoulders was recognized as the “Coach of the Year” for both boys and girls golf in District 10 A-AA.

  Williams is the son of Anita Romine and Lesley Williams. He managed to win the 10 A-AA District Tournament. A steady wedge shot from eight yards out was what gave Austin the win. This coming after one of his competitors hit a “chilly-dip,” which all but eliminated him, on the first play-off hole.  “ After seeing that shot, all I could think about was ‘I can come in second.’ If my ball hadn’t hit the pin, I don’t know what would have happened.” Williams finished with a nine hole stroke average of 36.5 for the year.

  Coach Beverly Shoulders has been recognized by her peers once before. She has been coaching golf at MCHS for ten years and this is the first time she has won the award with the boys team. “I am truly grateful for the dedication and support from some of the finest fans and parents that anyone could have. I cannot say enough about their efforts , love for this sport, and these student-athlets.”
