AARON BEVERLY BECOMES SECOND SIGNEE FOR MEN'S GOLF
SACRAMENTO, Calif. — The Sacramento State men's golf team continued to add to its 2011-12 signing class with the addition of Aaron Beverly.
Beverly is currently a senior at Armijo High School in Fairfield, Calif., where he has already built an impressive resume in just three seasons. He has twice been named the Monticello Empire League MVP and is a two-time Solano Country Player of the Year.
"Aaron is a great academic student and works just as hard on the golf course," Sacramento State men's golf coach Chris Hall said. "He has a good swing and putts the ball well. He's a great addition to the team and will make an immediate impact."
This past summer, he finished first in two Junior Golf Association of Northern California events and was in the top three of three others. His two victories came at the Green Valley Junior and the Fairfield Junior Championship. He also won his age group at the Sacramento County Junior Championship at Ancil Hoffman where he shot 69 in the first round. His lowest round of the summer was a 65 at the Fairfield Junior.
“Aaron’s one of the classiest kids I’ve ever dealt with on the golf team,” Armijo head coach Jay Dahl told the Fairfield Daily Republic. “He’s deserving. He’s a good student and a role model at school. I’m excited for him. It’s been his goal all along of playing golf in college. He’s just a classy kid. His dad has raised him the right way.”
Beverly joins Granite Bay's Alex Gibbs in the 2011-12 recruiting class. Both will be freshmen next season at Sacramento State.
