SANTA CLARITA, Calif. – The Master’s College golf team is proud to announce the signing of Josh Delo of Mesa, Arizona to compete during the 2014-15 athletic year.
Delo, an upcoming graduate of Tri-City Christian Academy, has enjoyed considerable success during his prep years, highlighted by being a member of a state championship squad and runners-up (Mountain View HS) in 2012 and 2013, respectively.
Individually, he placed 7th in the 2013 state match, carding the lowest score on his team. He was selected to All-Mesa team for public schools in that city and was the runner-up in the Ping Junior Match Play Championship.
Commenting on his future at The Master’s College, Delo said, “I chose The Master’s because I want to grow in my walk with Christ. To learn, study, and play golf in a Christian environment will strengthen my faith. I also chose the college for the quality academics offered.
I wanted to attend school where I would be challenged academically and The Master’s was the obvious choice. I chose TMC because I get to play collegiate sports. I have always dreamed of becoming a collegiate athlete and now that dream is coming true.”
Delo also has a few lofty goals as he looks forward to competing for The Master’s College next year: “I want our team to make it to the NAIA Championship. I would also like to follow in Thane Ringler’s footsteps and become a NAIA All-American, as well as an academic All-American. It is my goal to improve my mental game and become a more mature player, and a good teammate. Most importantly, I want to be a good testimony for Christ and The Master’s College.”
Delo plans to pursue a degree in Business Administration with an emphasis in finance with the goal of using it for a career in personal finance and investing.
Following a solid fall showing in three events, the Mustangs kicked off their spring schedule with a third-place finish (out of 12 teams) at the CSU San Marcos Spring Invite.
Delo’s signing is a key one looking ahead to 2014-15 season, with the Mustangs graduating four seniors this year.
