Trey Herman’s classroom days are over at Hays High, but the senior returned to the cafeteria on Friday to sign his letter of intent to golf at Fort Hays State University. Though contacted by a few different schools, Herman always knew he wanted to attend Fort Hays State and golf gave him an opportunity to have part of his education paid for. After considering other options, Herman decided that the Tigers would still be the best fit for him.
Heading into the state golf tournament at Newton on Monday, Herman is on pace to break the Senior Year Stroke Average Record of 75 set by Doug Lowen. Herman has shot an average of 74.2 this season including three consecutive tournaments under par. Herman also is also on pace, along with teammate Nick VonLintel, to break the Career Stroke Average set by Wes Simoneau at 77.41. Currently VonLintel is at 76.8 and Herman sits at 77.2. Three times Herman has won the regional tournament heading into state, including a 69 at Smoky Hill Country Club in Hays on Monday. That 69 tied his career low that was set at the Valley Center Invitation held in Newton, on the same course Hays High will compete on for state on Monday.
