Gardner Edgerton Hgih School senior Jonathan Hughes recently signed a national letter of intent to play golf at Webster University in St. Louis this fall.
A four-year letterwinner, Hughes played varsity as a freshman and has qualified for the state tournament the last three seasons. He will attempt to qualify for a fourth time this week.
Hughes led the Blazers’ transition into the Eastern Kansas League and has three individual tournament titles to his credit.
He currently ranks second on the Eastern Kansas League tournament championship series with one round remaining.
Hughes is close to an individual school record.
“Jon was easy to coach, always well prepared and mentally tough,”said Coach Scott Shaefer. “He is a hard working young man and I am blessed to having coached him.”
Hughes ranks at the top of his class academically and will major in Business Management, Economics or Education.
