Gallia Academy senior Nick Saunders, seated front and center, signed a letter of intent to continue his golf career with Shawnee State University on Wednesday (April 11) at the GAHS conference room in Centenary, Ohio. Saunders, a three-time all-league recipient and three-time district performer, was named the 2011 Southeastern Ohio Athletic League’s most valuable golfer after leading the Blue Devils to a perfect 30-0 mark in conference. Saunders, who was also an All-Ohio honoree this fall in Division II, plans to major in business and commented on his choice of SSU. “I feel very confident about attending Shawnee State. I know they have a good business program and that they have a lot of talented golfers coming in. We could, hopefully, have some good years ahead of us.” Seated next to Nick are his parents, Connie and Rusty. Standing in back, from left, are GAHS Principal Tim Massie, GAHS golf coach Corey Luce, SSU golf coach Roger Merb and GAHS athletic director Craig Wright.
