Golfers highest Honorable Mention Team Academic All-State

The Delavan-Darien High School varsity boys golf team was awarded the highest Team Academic All-State Honorable Mention recently for its success in the classroom.

The squad — comprised of seniors Alex Grover, Nick Ward, Andrew Pierson, Julius Kursatz and junior Nathan Johnson — finished just out of the top three placings, according to the Golf Coaches Association of Wisconsin (GCAW).

It was the fourth year of the awards, which were established to recognize high school golf teams with the highest ‘team’ grade point averages (‘team’ is defined as the five designated golfers on the roster for the spring 2015 WIAA regional tournament).

Teams had to receive a cumulative grade point average of at least 3.25 to qualify as an honorable mention. The Comets had a team GPA of 3.69. DDHS was recognized as the highest honorable mention in Division 1.

The three teams with the highest cumulative team GPA in each division (D1- D2-D3) were recognized with gold, silver, or bronze medals for each student-athlete, and their schools received a certificate to note this accomplishment.

Last year, DDHS golfers also received an honorable mention.
