Pressure? Not a word in the Aurora golf dictionary

It’s a good thing there’s plenty of time over the summer to make room in the Aurora Sports Complex for new championship banners, because it’s filling up fast.
The Aurora boys golf team capped off an impressive 2016-17 school year sports calender by winning the Class B team championship, adding a second banner for the Huskies in the span of five days.
Directly off the heels of the Aurora girls track championship May 20, the Husky golf squad turned in two of the best rounds of golf you’ll ever see, posting a two-day score of 605 to win gold. Those two teams join the Aurora girls cross country team, which won the title back in the fall.
The Husky golf team winning the team championship really is an interesting story. Were they really one of the best teams in Class B all year? Did they sneak up and steal the trophy from someone?
