NMC senior Grant Pogue closed out his high school golf career over the weekend, he finished 16th in field of 166 golfers in the division four state finals.

Pogue shot a round of 79 on the first day and followed that up with an 87 on Saturday, good for a 166.

“Grant played pretty well the first day, just had a couple holes that hurt him,” head coach Dave Skinner said. “The second day, he hit the ball about as well as he had all year, but he was really struggling with his putter. He was pretty frustrated wit his score, however I reminded him just how much he has meant and the impact he has had on our golf program.”

Pogue’s impact on the team during his time on the team has certainly been noticed by his head coach.

“NMCS has never had a state qualifier in it’s 15-year history and he made it twice,” Skinner said. “He has inspired a lot of new golfers to our program and he currently holds the school record, not to mention an opportunity to play four more years at the college level. Grant has been a great representation of our school and his parents, Matt and Renee Pogue. We’ll miss him next season.”
