Golf

In 2023, the Golf Rock-A-Chaws finished fourth place in Division 8 3-A with a total score of 691. The team’s leading golfers were sophomores Jack Lawson and Mitchell Thompson, who scored 166 and 168, respectively, over the course of two days.

In 2023, golf was moved from a spring sport to a fall sport by the Mississippi High School Athletic Association.

The golf team at Saint Stanislaus is made up of highly skilled players, some of whom have handicaps of 5 or better. Many golfers from this team have gone on to have successful college careers at both Division I and III levels, with some even receiving All-American honors. The team, known as the Golf Rocks, participates in various tournaments held in the area.

Golf was first introduced at Saint Stanislaus in 1972 under the guidance of Coach Ron Engel. However, the school ceased the program in 1978 when the MHSAA did not sanction the sport. When the MHSAA finally sanctioned the sport in 1988, the program was restarted under Chuck Genin. From 1993-1996, 1998-2001, 2010, 2012, and 2013-2017, the Rocks won division titles. They were also Class 4A state runner-up in 1995 and 2016, and Class 4A state champions in 2014 and 2015.

In 2020, Mark Logan, a graduate of Saint Stanislaus (SSC ’86) and the winningest coach in the history of the Varsity Baseball Program, was named the new golf coach. Logan stepped away from the baseball field after 17 years as manager of the program with a record of 286-168, six Division 8-4A titles, two Class 4A South State titles, and two Class 4A state championships (2010, 2015). He is now ready to bring his success from the baseball field to the golf program.
