GOULAS QUALIFIES FOR SOUTHERN AMATEUR CHAMPIONSHIP

LAFAYETTE – Louisiana Ragin’ Cajuns golfer Micah Goulas qualified for next month’s Southern Amateur Championship after finishing second overall at the Baton Rouge sectional qualifying round on Wednesday at University Club.

Goulas, a 2019 second-team All-Louisiana selection and LSWA Newcomer of the Year, fired a 2-over-par 74 to earn one of the two qualifying spots from a 14-player field. He finished three strokes behind Baton Rouge’s Hayden White and one stroke ahead of Ragin’ Cajuns teammate – and first alternate – Peter Hinnant.

The New Iberia native will join teammate Charlie Flynn at the 113th annual event, which will take place July 17-20 at Chenal Country Club in Little Rock, Ark.

Flynn, who led Louisiana as a freshman with a 73.27 scoring average, earned an exemption into the event by virtue of his first-place finish at the 2018 Southern Junior Championship at Choudrant’s Squire Creek Country Club.
