In a story appearing in the Huntsville Item, a historic season for the Sam Houston Bearkats came to a close on Monday with an impressive showing at the NCAA Division I Men’s Golf Championship. Senior Will Holcomb turned in a top-10 performance, while the Bearkats, who made their national championship debut at Grayhawk Golf Club in Scottsdale, Arizona, finished tied for ninth as a team. After leaning on his teammates last month while sidelined for the final day of the Stillwater Regional due to COVID-19 contact tracing, Holcomb led the way for Sam Houston on the big stage. The Crockett native posted a 1-under-par 279 for the tournament to finish tied for eighth.
