Ben Shipp & Steffen Smith have been named to the Gwinnett Daily Post’s Super Six for Golf. Shipp, a senior, was named the Class AA Player of the Year by the Georgia High School Coaches Association for last spring.
Coach Richey comments, “I’m always amazed by Ben’s work ethic – he is such a tremendous leader by example to the other golfers in our program. He is continually the last person practicing which shows his intense attention to detail. I’ve always been so impressed with Ben’s ability to overcome adversity and bounce back from bad circumstances. He truly is an inspiration to our school, our team and entire golf community.”
Steffen Smith, a senior, has been a part of the First-Team All-County selection by the Gwinnett Daily Post for the past two seasons. He also was the 2014 individual Class AA state champion.
Coach Richey describes Steffen as a “leader, both on and off the course for 3 years now. His successes have definitely been the result of his intense hard work in practice and on the range. He is also such a wise person, lending his encouragement and help to younger golfers in our program. His attitude, effort and determination stands him apart.”
