Cumberland University recently signed their third Macon County High School golf team member for the 2013-2014 school year. Austin Williams, a valuable member of the MCHS team, will receive a sports scholarship to the institution. He plans to study business management.
“We’d already signed Zach, and Beverly let me know about Austin,” said Head Coach Richard Williams (no relation). “She’s had a pretty good relationship with the previous coach, and we’ve kept that up. This will be my third Macon County prospect coming in for 2014-2015. And we’ve got two on the team already.” The two former MCHS golfers already playing for Cumberland are Haley Chitwood and Ian Whittemore. For the coming year, they have now signed Austin Williams, Zach Polston, and Kaitlin Cartright.
Head Coach Williams is new to Cumberland, having joined the staff in Januar of this year. MCHS golf coach Beverly Shoulders continues to serve as an ‘informant’ for Cumberland golf scouting.
