When chronicling the history of Lee Williams High athletics, the boys golf team will hold a significant place in school history.

In fact, they could be an answer to a trivia question someday.

What team captured the first ever varsity win for the Volunteers? Answer: The boys golf team.

Led by Corey Smith's 45, the team was able to accomplish this feat with a 207-214 win over Bullhead City Mohave Thursday at Cerbat Cliffs Golf Course.

"I am very proud of them for performing the way they did, especially on the back end of a grueling back-to-back match schedule," said Lee Williams coach Stephen Shuffler.

The day before, the Volunteers competed in a match in the Phoenix area with Phoenix Goldwater, Peoria and Glendale Cactus.

Lee Williams finished third with a score of 211 behind first-place Goldwater's 187 and Peoria's 208.

Smith once again led LWHS with a 49.

"We are proud of these young men," said LWHS athletic director Cory Williams. "They are perfect examples of upholding the expectations that have been set for them here at Lee Williams. I am excited they are able to taste a little success as freshmen."

Richard Serrano also shot a 49 for Lee Williams last week in Phoenix. Tanner Kemp had a 56, Garret Menter had 57 and Travis Keefe shot a 59.

Against Mohave, Serrano had a 49, Kemp 52, Giancarlo Narvarte 61 and Menter had a 64.

"These young men have great attitudes, have dedicated their time to golf and academics, and have performed well above my expectations," Shuffler said. "When we came into the year, I wanted to provide an atmosphere for these kids to learn the game of golf, have fun, be competitive, and represent Lee Williams to the best of their ability. We have not only reached all those goals but are now winning. It's great to see, and fun to be a part of ... the future is very bright for Lee Williams golf."
