Men’s Golf announces first recruit

Sam Sowers signs a letter of intent to play golf at Hesston College.

Hesston College men’s golf coach Chris Frantz announces Sam Sowers, a senior at Atchison County Community High School, Effingham, Kan., as the first recruit of Hesston’s new golf program.

Sowers was a state qualifier for ACCHS and placed fourth in the 2015 Big 7 League tournament. A four-year principal’s honor roll student, he will study business at Hesston.

“I’m thrilled to have Sam as our first recruit,” Frantz said. “He’s a solid golfer and will be a great addition to our student body. We’re so excited to get this program off and running, and getting quality student athletes like Sam is the best way to do that. I couldn’t be happier that he’s decided to make Hesston his future home.”

Sowers is the son of Ben and Krista Sowers, Cummings, Kan. He attends Trinity Lutheran Church.
