Tibbs to play golf at Oregon Tech
Crook County High School golf star Mayson Tibbs has signed a letter of intent to play golf at Oregon Institute of Technology in Klamath Falls.
Tibbs, who finished third at each of the last two state championships, plans to study either engineering or business at the university.
Tibbs, a two-time district champion, expects to immediately contribute to OIT's golf program.
"It's going to be different, going away from home, and I will have a lot more responsibility, but I am excited for the golf," Tibbs said. "They have a really good golf team, and they have really good coaches there. They have really good technology that they use and a really structured practice schedule."
He signed his letter of intent in early June at the combined Crook County High School boys and girls golf awards banquet, which was held at Prineville Golf Club.
Tibbs has had a busy summer, playing in tournaments throughout Oregon as he works to better his game.
Tibbs was a four-year varsity player for the Cowboys and has won several tournaments, both during the school year and while competing in junior golf tournaments throughout the Northwest.
