For the first time in school history, the Hurricane Boys Golf Team competed in the State UIL Golf Tournament, showcasing their skill and determination.

The boys team, consisting of Lex Barlow, Keaton Blume, Jaxson Dittmer, Joshua McGown, Jake Robinson, and Adrian Rodriguez, is the first Klein ISD golf team to make it to state in 18 years.

Additionally, individual golfer Zoë Hobbs was the first Klein Cain golfer to make a second appearance at state.

“This has been a very special and unprecedented year for the Klein Cain Golf team,” Klein Cain Golf Coach Jennifer Johnson said. “It is exciting for our boys’ golf team to advance to the state tournament for the first time in school history and for Zoë Hobbs to be the first individual to return to the state tournament.”

This year, Adrian Rodriguez became the fifth Hurricane in a row to be the individual district champion, following Matthew Spaulding, Andrew Spaulding, Davis Byrd, and Joshua McGown. 

The boys team also won the district tournament for the fourth time in a row. This is an impressive feat, as the team has navigated challenges with different sets of players over the last three years. The boys' team tied for third at regionals, winning a three-hole sudden-death playoff to secure the final spot to advance to state.

The boys have said that good team chemistry is the main factor that pushed this team to new heights.

“During my four years here, we have had talented teams, but the connection and bond that we have with the guys this year is special, and that’s what allowed us to succeed at state,” senior golfer Keaton Blume said.

Individual Golfer, Zoë Hobbs

Zoë Hobbs was the first individual golfer from Klein Cain High School to make the Top 10 at State. This talented athlete played phenomenally, placing 2nd at the regional tournament and tying for 9th at the state tournament. 

Congratulations to the Klein Cain Boys Golf Team and Zoë Hobbs on their impressive showing at the State UIL Golf Tournament and on an outstanding season! Your #KleinFamily is so proud of you for excellently representing our district.
