2015: Billy Casper’s Mark as Chula Vista Student

Billy Casper, who passed away recently at age 83, was not only a Hall of Fame golfer as a professional but  also made his mark as a student  at Chula Vista High.

Casper was runner-up as a sophomore, champion as a junior, and runner-up as a senior in the CIF Southern Section golf championships from 1948-50.

Casper won the individual title in 1949  by shooting a 73 and winning in a sudden death playoff at Montebello Country Club.

Casper was named as one of the CIF Southern Section’s 100 greatest athletes when the organization celebrated its 100th anniversary in 2013.
