Legion Collegiate Academy Athletic Director Strait Herron has announced the hiring of former South Pointe High School coach Kim Case to lead the Lancers golf program.
“Having worked with Kim in the past it is evident that she can assist young athletes to become better players but her ability to treat her players as if they were her own child is what makes her a perfect hire.” said Herron.
Case is a veteran girls’ head golf coach who led South Pointe High School to the 2014 South Carolina State Championship and coached the Stallions for seven years while compiling a 78-1 match record.
During her seven years at South Pointe, Case’s teams captured six consecutive Region Championships from 2010 through 2015 and won two Upper State Championships in 2013 and 2014. Under her guidance, the Stallions had 38 Top 10 tournament finishes, 25 Top 5 tournament finishes and captured 14 tournament titles.
She was honored in 2015 as the National Federation High School (NHFS) Coach of the Year and in 2014 was selected South Carolina Coach of the Year and the HSSR Coach of the Year. She was voted Region Coach of the Year twice and was The Herald Coach of the Year three times. Four of her athletes played for NCAA Division I schools and two played Division II.
In addition to coaching high school golf, Case began playing amateur golf in 1993. She is the past Club Champion at the Rock Hill Country Club and University Club (Cobblestone) in Blythewood, SC. She served as the chair for the Women’s South Carolina Golf Association’s Junior Foundation for four years and has served as Head Rater for the South Carolina Golf Association Executive Rating Team.
