ARLINGTON, Texas...The University of Texas at Arlington has signed Southlake Carroll High School golfers Marc Campbell and Chris Myers to National Letters of Intent to study and play golf at the university beginning in the fall, 2003 semester. The announcement was made by head golf coach Jay Rees.
Campbell earned an assortment of athletic and academic awards as a four-year letter winner at Southlake Carroll. He earned All-State honors after finishing 10th at the Texas Class 5A State Championship, shooting 74-73=147 in the event. He was also a Dallas Morning News first team All Area selection and a member of the Future Collegians World Tour All-American second team. Campbell, the team's captain, also earned Southlake Carroll's "C" Award, awarded to student-athletes that go above and beyond the call of duty to offer support and leadership to teammates, in 2003.
Campbell was also a four-time member of the Academic All-District team during his high school career. A scholar in the classroom, Campbell has earned the National English Merit Award and was named to the American Academy of Distinguished Students.
Myers teamed with Campbell for three years at Southlake Carroll after transferring to the school from Edmond, Okla. In each of his three years at Southlake Carroll, Myers earned first team All-District honors. After finishing third in the District 6-4A tournament as a junior, Myers won the District 7-5A title as a senior in 2003. He would go on to earn second team All-Region honors as a senior and finish the year with a 74.68 strokes per round average in his final year of high school play.
Myers has also been impressive outside of high school play. He has appeared in the past two American Junior Golf Association Boys Junior Championships, and won the 2002 AJGA Abilene Qualifier with a score of 2-under-par-70. His career low round came in the second round of the United States Junior Amateur in San Antonio in 2001, when he fired a 65.
