For the 2nd time in as many years, WHS 2013 Graduate Brian Peck has won the KCAC Mens Golf Conference Championship in Garden City, KS and this time around, with relative ease! The Southwestern College Senior battled in a one-hole playoff with a gentleman from Oklahoma Wesleyan for the crown last year, this year no need for that at all.

Congratulations to Brian who jumped out on the competition in Round 1 shooting an 8 under par 64 on the Par 72 Prairie Dunes Golf Course, site of the Championship and Brian shot PAR or UNDER PAR (70) and (72) the rest of the way in the 3 day, 54 hole event!

His 3 day total (206) bettered his (216) from last year and his closest competitor this go-round was Josh Meeks from Bethany College who shot a 215! The "9" stroke win isn't bad for a young man who didn't take up the game of golf until the summer after his Junior Year at WHS. When asked about this 2nd consecutive crown, Brian said, "it was fun!". Indeed it was, for you, your family and your pals back here in Wellington - congratulations again sir!!!
