SHSU Golfer Named Freshman Of The Year

By  | 

Scott Kelly of Sam Houston State has been named as a first team
All-Southland Conference selection and was voted as SLC men's golf "Freshman of the Year" by the league's head golf coaches and sports information directors.

Kelly, a freshman from Kingwood, became the sixth Sam Houston State men's golfer to win the Southland Conference individual medalist championship last week.

Kelly fired a one-under par 215 at Lake Charles to tie for the top
individual spot, then birdied the second hole of the playoff to earn the
trophy. Kelly compiled the golf team's top stroke average this year with a 74.1 mark, leading the Bearkat to two team titles and a runner-up finish at conference, Sam Houston's highest Southland finish since 1994.

Senior Brandon Frankhouser was named All-Southland Conference honorable mention. Frankhouser ranked second on the Bearkat men's golf team in stroke average with a mark of 74.3. His top finish was 10th at the Cypress Bend Classic. Frankhouser placed 24th at the 2008 Southland Conference tournament
