RAMBLIN' RECK: South senior Goss taking his golf skills to Dayton

TERRE HAUTE — Thomas Goss soon will enroll for his senior year at Terre Haute South High School and his final season of high school golf.

He said recently that he wanted to make his decision on college and college golf before school began and he did that last week. He told the coaching staff at the University of Dayton that he will attend the Atlantic 10 Conference school.

Goss has had a super high school career so far and figures to add to those stats in the spring.

He has been to the state finals three times, going with the South team twice and as an individual qualifier this season. He qualified for the match-play action in the Boys State Junior Championships last week at Purdue and won three matches to advance to the quarterfinals, where he lost to the player who took runner-up honors. In addition to being second medalist in the regional this year to qualify for the state, Goss has been medalist in Metropolitan Interscholastic Conference action and was sectional medalist his freshman season.

He shot 69 in that sectional played at Rolling Meadows. That mark was his best for 18 holes in high school until this past spring, when he carded 67 in the Northview Invitational at Forest Park.

He has been stellar in the city junior tournament, winning his age group five straight times.

• Changes at NC — Some changes have been made in the athletics staff at North Central High School in Sullivan County.
