Meet your 2017 Rattler Golf Team
The Otero Junior College Golf team began their spring season under first-year Head Coach Scott Monarco. The team will play tournaments in Colorado, Nebraska, and Wyoming over a wide range of challenging courses.
The Rattler Golf Team is made up of 5 women and 6 men. Coming off of competing in the National Tournament in the spring of 2016, the women’s golf team leads in Region IX. The men currently hold second in Region IX behind Central Wyoming College.
Athletic Director Gary Addington is optimistic for the future of the team. “Joe McClain did an outstanding job of developing the Golf program and turning it into a Region IX powerhouse. I think Scotty Monarco will continue the tradition. Scotty knows and understands Otero Junior College and our philosophy as he is a former student athlete of OJC. I know Scotty will do a great job,” said Addington.
The OJC Golf Team will be hosting their season opening tournament Thursday, March 23 at 1 p.m. and Friday, March 24 at 9 a.m. at La Junta Municipal Golf Course.
