The CPA Golf Team put together their season’s best scores while rolling over previously undefeated Konos Academy by 25 strokes at Eagles Landing Country Club: breaking the school record (twice), and becoming State Champions!
“The guys knew what they had to do and flat out executed with mental toughness and a strong desire to win. I couldn't be more proud of their efforts. They peaked at exactly the right time! We’re excited to bring the Championship Trophy and banner back to Cornerstone", said Coach Burger. With half the team being new this year, they came together and declared two goals at the beginning of the season: Win State and break the school record.
While golf is generally considered an individual sport, team golf is so much more fun because the players come together to win. The players commit hundreds of hours each year to the sport. All of that hard work and determination came together at the State Tournament, finishing with an undefeated season, a State Championship, and the school golf record on 9 and 18 holes. Congratulations! Go, Cougars!
