Middle School Boys' Golf
The Middle School Boys’ Golf team had a very strong 2018 season, losing only two matches during the regular season and finishing 3rd (out of 8) in the conference tournament. The team competes in the Greater Charlotte Middle School Athletic Association (GCMSAA) and is led by long-time coach and Latin alum, Chuck Edwards.
Charlotte Latin School’s code is “Honor Above All.” We believe that athletics provides the opportunity for many teachable moments of life’s lessons. In athletics, honoring yourself, your team, your opponent, officials and the game you play are qualities we encourage in our student-athletes every day.
Chuck Edwards began teaching history in the Upper School and coaching Middle School Basketball and Golf in 2006. He led the 8th Grade Boys’ Basketball team until 2015, and continues to lead the Middle School Boys’ Golf team. Coach Edwards is a former recipient of the Newcomer Award at the Hawkspys and is a class of ’94 alumni. He has three children attending Charlotte Latin.
