“I'm very proud of this team,” BSHS Coach Chris Joslin said. “This is the first district team title for Big Spring this year and it's the first district title for the golf team in a long time. I'm just very proud of them and their commitment to the program.”
Leading the charge was Brorman.
“Blake put in a lot of time and effort to get to this point,” Joslin said. “Everything he accomplished was well-deserved.”
With Brorman and Fillingim leading the way, and with several good young golfers filing in the ranks, Joslin admitted his had high hopes for the program this season.
“This was the year we were really looking forward to,” he said. “They accomplished a lot of good things this year. The thing I'm proudest of is that they are a lot of good young men.”
