Update: Boy’s Golf won state.

The Eagle High boy’s golf team was led by Texas A&M commit junior Wheaton Ennis who came back to Eagle and plans on helping them win another state title in the last two years. 

The team is coming into the fall season looking at a great shot at another state title this year. They are very experienced with them only losing one senior last year. 

Last year, Eagle High took districts and lost a close battle to Boise High at state; they only lost by a few strokes. 

Third year returning member and junior Zach Shipp has high praise for the team this season. 

“We have a great team this year. No matter who is playing on varsity we will always have a great shot at winning,” Shipp said.

Ennis has transferred back to Eagle and has brought the team a new hope of another state title.
Everyone has respect for Ennis and loves to have him on the team because of how helpful he is to everyone no matter their skill level. 

Wheaton is not only a great player, but he is also a great teammate,” Shipp said. “He is always willing to help out not only the varsity players but also the JV players.

Being led by Ennis, sophomore Beau Sahr, Shipp and senior Nathan Ishaya. Eagle High’s Golf team has had a great start to the season winning four of their first five tournaments. 

Unfortunately, there is not a lot of more golf to play this season because they have districts on Sept. 28 followed up by state on Oct. 7 and 8. 

If the Eagle boy’s golf team continues this pace, they’ll be a team that is a force to be reckoned with at state, as they hope to win their eighth state title this year.
