Nathan Zhao (2015) kept his consistent play in tact this past weekend at the Golf Center of Excellence traveled to sunny Florida to compete in the FCWT Mission Hills event just outside of Orlando, FL in Howey-in-the-Hills. After an opening round of 74 (+2) Zhao found himself in a tie for 2nd place, 4 shots behind the leader. During his first round, Nathan was up and down during his first nine holes with a 39 on the par 35. Zhao then hit the accelerator with 3 birdies on the back side and a 35 (-2) on the par 37 giving a total of 74. The final round had Zhao paired with the leader who attends a golf academy at Mission Hills which is his home course and facility. The plan on day 2 was for Zhao to play aggressive from the start to try and apply pressure with the conditions turning very windy. Nathan did just that coming out with a birdie on the first hole. Then his competitor birdied the 2nd hole to withstand the charge Zhao was applying. Nathan finished the front nine with 3 bogeys and a double, but then regained his composure to finish the back nine strong with a 36 (+1) and take sole position of 2nd place. Coach Higdon is very proud of Nathan and the rest of the team for their showing in Florida. Nathan showed great composure and his overall talent level by competing head to head with all of the kids whose home facility is Mission Inn. Those kids are out there practicing every day and know the ins and outs of the course. Our players showed their talent level and work ethic by competing with these kids stroke for stroke. Nathan finishing as runner-up along with Camden Nierman (2012) an Sam Eisenhuth (2014) finished in a tie for 7th which shows SSM and its players are contenders in any tournament we play. I am really proud of all of our players and their performance. We do have some practice and work to accomplish in the next 2 weeks before we head back down to Florida on February 21st.”
Sam Eisenhuth (2014) and Camden Nierman (2012) finished in a tie for 7th in the 55 player field. Both recorded rounds of 77 in the opening round without a birdie and had themselves in the hunt. Both shot the same round on the second day with 78′s and ended up only being 4 shots out of 2nd place. This was Nierman’s 3rd top 10 finish of this season and this marks the 2nd top 10 for Eisenhuth. With the 2nd place finish, Zhao moves into 5th place overall in the season points standings. Jake Curwin who shot rounds of 80,83 and finished in 24th sits in 8th place overall for the season while Eisenhuth is in 12th and Nierman makes a big jump into 17th.
Shane Hoben (2016) shot rounds of 82,85 for 7th place in the boys 13-15 age group. Hoben had 2 birdies during his opening round but was not able to muster up any during the final round. According to Coach Higdon this was Shane’s best performance of the year. “Score and finish wise, this may not have been Shane’s best performance of the season on paper, but I can tell you as far as striking the ball and his overall swing, this is by far his best performance of the season. I am proud of Shane as he set out to accomplish one goal of swinging with good tempo the entire tournament and he was able to do that. There is no doubt in my mind things are going to continue to get better this spring with Shane.”
Sydney Brickey and Sophia Hill competed for SSM in the girls division and finished in 15th and 18th place respectively. They both had opening rounds of 84 and were paired together during the final round in which Brickey shot 86 and Hill shot 89. Sometimes it can be more difficult when you are paired with a teammate or good friend during a competitive round as it adds many elements to the mix that is not common during tournament play. Hill who is going through a drastic transition with her swing did a great job of staying positive and accomplishing the goals she was looking for with her swing. Great things are on the horizon for this young lady.
The golfers have a short break before heading back down to Florida for a FCWT event on February 23rd and 24th at Plantation Inn which is in Crystal River, Florida just north of Tampa.

SSM Introduces the Hometown Hi-Tech Tour
Faribault, MN (JAN 2013) – Students of all ages potentially interested in a technology career are encouraged to participate in a tour of some of Faribault’s hi-tech companies arranged by Shattuck-St. Mary’s through a new “Hometown Hi-Tech Tour” series launching this spring.
Starting with a visit to Sage Electrochromics on Wednesday, January 30 at 7:00 pm, each site visit will offer the chance for students to get a behind-the-scenes tour of each facility and meet some of the people who work with the technologies and learn about their careers.
A flyer with information on all the tours can be obtained from the school’s STEM@SSM web site http://ssmstem.org or by calling 507/333-1562. Each event is free and open to all students, but pre-registration is required. Future visits include companies both large and small, each demonstrating a different form of technology and at different stages of development.
“Students hear a lot about engineering and technology, but it is usually beyond their reach, simplified, or only hypothetical,” said John Blackmer, Director of the STEM@SSM program. “These tours offer the chance to experience a dazzling array of real-world technologies in action.”
These events represent the latest offerings of Shattuck-St. Mary’s STEM@SSM outreach programming, which strives to engage learners throughout the local and neighboring communities in science, technology, engineering and math pursuits.
