Congratulations to Grant Hutchinson for being named Athlete of the Week. The Sports and Entertainment Marketing classes at Socastee High School in partnership with the athletic department sponsor this weekly award.
Grant is a freshman on the boys’ golf team and has been playing the game since he was old enough to pick up a club. “I enjoy playing with my teammates and my favorite memory is making a hole-in-one on my brother’s birthday,” said Grant. Grant’s role model in golf is his father, Chuck, who works in the golf industry and is also the coach of the team. “Our team is young and improving, and I train for the season by going to the range and playing everyday,” explained Grant. Grant has aspirations of being a professional golfer one day.
Grant received medalist honors in three matches this season and finished in the Top 6 at the Region VI- AAAAA tournament which earned him All-Region Honors. He also advanced to the AAAAA Lower State Tournament as an individual. Coach Hutchinson had the following to say about Grant: “I enjoy having Grant on the team and he has made a significant impact this season. He has consistently been a top performer playing the number 1 or 2 spot. Making the All-Region team is a quite a feat for a freshman. The future looks very bright for Grant. His hard work, dedication, and leadership are paying off.”
