Crean Lutheran’s boys golf team was off to a 2-0 start when athletics were suspended.

“Although our season came to an unfortunate and abrupt halt, we are confident that our 2020 Saints’ men’s golf team was outstanding,” said Coach Coach Aaron Puls. “We were blessed with many young and talented athletes. We look forward to next year and we recognize especially our lone senior and captain Thomas Yang.

“Thomas is an exceptional golfer and an even greater human being. It is unfortunate that his senior season was cut short.”

If you took pictures before the season, we would like to share team pictures of spring teams with our readers. These can be pictures of seniors or the entire team and we will run these throughout the coming months to salute the hard working athletes of Orange County who have had their seasons cut short. Please email pictures, names of the players and some highlights to timburt@ocsportszone.com so we can share with our readers. Horizontal pictures similar in size to the one above work best. Please do not take pictures now for us.
