Meet Camrin!

Meet SOLA athlete, Camrin Sandoz.


Camrin is a junior at Loreauville High School in Loreauville, Louisiana. He started playing Unified Golf with Special Olympics Louisiana just last year. Camrin trains hard, practices at his home course, Squirrel Run, in New Iberia every day, and decided to try out for his high school golf team. Although he is fairly new to the game, Camrin doesn’t play like it!  He went out for try outs and has earned a spot on the Loreauville High School golf team. Camrin will play matches in LHSAA. Congratulations Cam! We are proud of you!
