Competitive Excellence – Boys’ and Girls’ Golf Over the years, Cannon School’s boys’ and girls’ golf programs have become synonymous with excellence—the boys have claimed the state title four of the last five years; girls have won it seven of the last eight. “These teams have established themselves as the premier program in the state. They want to compete, and they don’t back away from putting in the work, year-round, to make that happen,” said Director of Athletics Pat Moyer.

the years, with good reason—the teams, both coached by Mr. Pat Whisenant, are dedicated to competitive excellence. “When you walk into Boswell Gym and see all the golf state championship banners hanging on the wall, it makes you determined to win more,” said Ben Diskin ’19, who will golf at Virginia Wesleyan University this fall. “No matter the situation, we all like to compete and push each other to be the best. When you combine past championships and a relentless group, you wind up with a team that is well-equipped for future success,” Ben said.
