Boys Junior Varsity Golf, Boys Varsity Golf · Boys Athlete of the Month – August 2016

Boys Student Athlete: Holden Richards

Holden is a senior and captain on the golf team. After playing five Region tournaments, Holden is fighting to stay in the top 10 in region standings. He has had several good rounds, shooting 78, 80, 78 and 85. Holden leads this team, not only with his play, but in many other ways. Holden started golfing a few years ago and has put in so much time and effort to get where he is today. As a coach, I really appreciate having a leader like Holden on the team. He sets an example that will carry on for years to come. Holden also takes his grades seriously and puts the same effort into classwork. Holden is also a two-time state champion wrestler.

Head Golf Coach
Holden is receiving this honor a second time, this time in golf. This is impressive as you have two different coaches in two different programs recognize his great qualities!

Having taught Holden, it is easy to see why he is considered a leader and example of what we want from our student athletes. I agree with his coaches that he puts full effort into everything he does. I also appreciate that, even though he has been a great success, as is demonstrated by his state championships in wrestling as a sophomore and a junior, he has always remained humble and teachable and continues to work hard to improve.

There is never a time he doesn’t pass me in the hall and takes the time to say, “Hi, Coach!” I have watched him do the same with all teachers and staff.
He works hard in the classroom as is shown by his GPA of 3.751! I have also been very impressed with how he attends many other events and supports his fellow students. With this kind of attitude and work ethic, there is no reason Holden can’t accomplish whatever he sets his mind to!
