St. Francis High has hired one of its own to coach the varsity boys golf team.
School officials announced last month that Tyler Martin, a 2001 graduate of St. Francis, is the new man in charge of the boys golf program.
Martin previously served as assistant golf coach at Whitefish High in Whitefish, Mont., where he also worked at the Whitefish Lake Golf Club as a PGA teaching pro.
“We are so very excited to welcome Tyler back to St. Francis High School and to have him as our head boys varsity golf coach,” Director of Athletics Michael Pilawski said. “Coach Martin knows our school well and we are thrilled to have his knowledge, passion and love for the game of golf and our school back here at St. Francis.”
Martin replaces Matt Maguire, who stepped down at the end of the spring season to take on an administrative position at the school.
“I am very excited to be back here at St. Francis High School,” Martin said. “We hope to build on the tremendous success the program has had on and off the golf course.”
Last season, the Lancers finished second at the West Catholic Athletic League championships, third at the Central Coast Section regionals and sixth at the CCS finals.
This season is scheduled to begin Feb. 22.
