Alex Heard, a new 8th grader at American Heritage Academy of Boca/Delray, joined the varsity high school golf team this Fall season. Quickly becoming the team’s #1 player, Alex was medalist in three of six matches, leading the American Heritage team to four victories. Alex’s 9-hole stroke average for his matches was 38.
Led by Alex, the team finished second in the District Championships, where Alex fired a 75 and was co-medalist. The team moved on to Regional competition, but failed to advance to the state finals. Alex hoped to advance as an individual, but his 78 on the difficult Bear’s Club course in windy conditions fell 3 strokes short of qualifying.
All in all, it was a great season with much camaraderie, and Alex enjoyed the team experience. He was honored to win the team’s “Most Valuable Player” award, and looks forward to more team golf in the future.
