Kinnane and Rahon Earn Back-to-Back All-County Golf Honors with Hanz and Xiao Being Named 2nd Team
If you've followed Servite Golf over the last four years you've heard the names Kyle Kinanne and Jack Rahon countless times as they've help lead the Friars to 3 CIF Championships and 4 Trinity League titles as well as numerous tournament championships. Their resumés speak for themselves and after four years of Varsity golf they are quite lengthy. With the announcement of the OC Register All-County selections, the golf season officially comes to a close and Kinnane and Rahon wrap up their high school careers as two of the most decorated golfers to come through Servite since current PGA Tour golfer Patrick Cantlay '10.
It's the third time Kinanne has received All-County honors after being named Golfer of the Year last season while Rahon has earned 1st Team All-County recognition twice.
As Kinnane (LMU) and Rahon (Seattle) move onto compete at the collegiate level, they give way to Servite's talented underclassmen including sophomores Alex Hanz and Cameron Xiao who were both named 2nd Team All-Orange County this season. It's the second time Xiao has been selected to the All-County team and the first for Hanz.
