St. Augustine High School

St. Augustine Golfer signs with Texas A&M International University (TAMIU)

Senior Horacio Perez signed to play golf for Texas A&M International University, an NCAA Division II team, on May 16, 2019. “Golfing has always been very special in my life since my dad’s side of the family is big on golf; everybody plays. I was grown into the game, and I’ve loved it ever since,” Horacio said. He will pursue a bachelor’s degree in finance.
“Horacio has always been a great picture of a student-athlete here in this school,” said Assistant Principal and coach, Rodrigo Romo, “He has always been able to balance golf, his friends and school. That has led him to this: three-time all-district selection, three-time all-region selection, three-time all-state selection, the district champ of 2019 and leading his team to second place at the state competition.”
