Golf - Boys
Boys golf is a varsity sport at Stillwater Area High School. Approximately 16-20 student athletes make the team following a brief tryout. Generally , six players compete in a varsity match and six players in a JV match. A score of 90 or better will make the team. 80 or better is a good varsity score in competition. There are 15+ Varsity matches and 10+ JV/JV-B matches.
The team has enjoyed some recent success with three Conference Championships in 2017, 2018 and 2019 prior to COVID. All three years included a Section Championship for the team and thus a trip to State. 2019 included Stillwater’s first ever Individual State Champion, Brock Winter. The 2021 team was a particularly young team and was successful as well, earning a 3rd place in Conference. The team also earned its first All-State Academic Award as a team. With 18 returning student athletes, we expect to do well in the coming year(s). Coach Scanlon is in his 20th year and played competitively at Stanford University. He lives locally with his wife Julie and has two Pony graduate sons, Kyle, a PGA professional in Northfield, and Konnor, an engineer and marathoner.
