Maplewood Richmond Heights freshman Kal Kolar, representing MRH on the school’s first golf team in the school’s history, won the Class 2 District 5 boys golf tournament, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported.
Kolar won the title Tuesday at The Falls Golf Club with a 1-over-par 72, with a seven-shot victory over Whitfield junior Drew Newlin.
The Post-Dispatch reported that Kolar is a big reason why MRH added boys golf, for the first time this spring.
“The important thing for me is he’s a good kid, a great golfer, a great human being overall,” said Shane Dixon, a ninth-year Maplewood-RH history teacher who took on the role of the program’s first coach, also from the Post-Dispatch.
