Nine Katy golfers honored by HAGCA

Five earn all-area first team, four garner all-area second-team honors

Posted

Nine Katy ISD golfers were recently recognized with spots on all-area teams as awarded by the Houston Area Golf Coaches Association. Seven Lakes High School had the most with five total selections, followed by two from Cinco Ranch and one each from Taylor and Tompkins.

The Seven Lakes Spartans’ all-area selections were split between two female first-teamers, two male second-teamers and another female second-teamer. Freshman Maelynn Kim and junior Lauren Nguyen were the all-area first team representatives for Seven Lakes on the girls’ side with junior classmate Grayson Heilman earning the second-team spot for the Lady Spartans. Junior Van Miller and sophomore Ted Sui garnered all-area second-team recognition for their seasons in Seven Lakes colors.

The Cinco Ranch Cougars had one first-team representative as well as a second-team honoree. Sophomore Holden Kittelberger landed on the all-area first team and junior Mallorie Luitwieler earned a spot on the all-area second team for the Lady Cougars.

Kevin Kim was the Taylor Mustangs’ lone representative although it was a first-team nod for the junior who won the individual district championship as a freshman.

Another golfer who has made noise since being a freshman is Tompkins’ lone honoree, Elina Sinz. The senior ended her Lady Falcon golf career a four-time team MVP, three-year varsity captain, earning all-district honors all four years and obtaining all-region honors three years.

Sinz was also named to the Texas Golf Coaches Association’s all-state first-team this year for her second career all-state honor. On Feb. 5, she signed her letter of intent to play golf for the University of Auburn Tigers next year.
