Year Inducted: 2015
Balanced scoring was the key to success for the St. Clair County Community College golf team during the 1970 season.
The Skippers' five-man starting lineup, which consisted of Bob Andrews of Sarnia, John Traub of Lexington, Herb Hildebrand from Port Huron Northern, along with Ken Balfour and Bob Baker each of St. Clair, all averaged in the 70s for 18 holes that season.
SC4 Coach Robert "Sam" Kromer guided the squad to a 20-0 regular-season record. The skippers won both the State and Region XII tournaments to quality for the National Tournament at Miami-Dade Community College.
The team finished seventh at Miami Lakes Golf Course, which was the best showing for a northern college in some time. At the time all the junior colleges and community colleges competed in the same division.
At the Nationals, Balfour and Hildebrand both led the balanced attack with a 72-hole total of 303. Nine strokes off the pace was Traub at 312 and Andrews was the fourth and final player at 313.
For the season, Hildebrand finished with a 75.77 average to lead the Skippers. Andrews was second at 76.88 followed by Traub (77.30), Balfour (78.00) and Baker (79.40).
