Turf Teams Trample Competition in Texas


Congratulations to Mt. SAC’s Turf Team students who captured a national championship at the Sports Turf Managers Association’s 25th annual conference held on Jan. 21-25 in San Antonio, Texas. 

With a total score of 136, Mt. SAC’s first-place championship team set a scoring record for all two-year college teams over the past three years. The first-place finish comes with a $4,000 award that will be used for the turf program at Mt. SAC.

Two Mt. SAC teams, Turf Teams 202 and 209, competed against students from 31 two-year colleges and universities from throughout the country, including teams from Purdue and Virginia Tech. 

Mt. SAC’s Turf Team 209 tied for third place in the two-year college competition. 

The teams were coached by Horticulture Professors Brian Scott and Chaz Perea.
