Lady Cats Assistant Basketball Coach Jeremy DeLorge is the new Wildcats Golf Coach. DeLorge replaces Chris Owens, who has retired from coaching and will be taking over as the SAC teacher, a high school in-school disciplinary program.
DeLorge is looking forward to his new challenge. He says he is excited and ready for the opportunity.
He gives Coach Owens credit for doing phenomenal work with the team. Coach DeLorge notes that the Wildcats lost some talented seniors but he adds there are some good players coming back. He wants to talk with Coach Owens this summer and to meet with players and their families to introduce himself.
Coach DeLorge says he took up golf when he was around 12 or 13 years old. He says when he picked up clubs he fell in love with the game. Coach DeLorge was a four-year letterman in golf at Irving Nimitz High School.
He says he was never a long hitter and had to depend on his short game around the green to score well. Coach DeLorge says he looks forward to developing the short game of his players.
He says he enjoyed this past year as an assistant coach for Lady Cats Head Basketball Coach Brittney Tisdell. This summer Coach DeLorge is continuing to work with Lady Cats’ basketball athletes on skills training.
