ST. BONAVENTURE, N.Y. – Josh Anderson, a 2002 graduate of Kane High School, was recently inducted into the St. Bonaventure University Athletics Hall of Fame as part of the Class of 2021.
A 2006 graduate of St. Bonaventure, Anderson’s name is at or near the top of every category in the school’s rec ord book.
A four-year player and captain for coach Steve Campbell’s Bonnies, Anderson turned in some of the finest seasons of any St. Bonaventure golfer.
His senior season of 2005-06 remains the campaign by which all Bonnies players are judged by in terms of season scoring as he finished that year with a stroke average of 73.00, lowest in program history. He captured three victories and five-top 5s that season, also tied for most in school history, and all 27 of his rounds were in the 70s or lower. His total of 71 birdies as a senior continue to rank sixth in the program record book as well while his par-4 average of 4.12 currently ranks best over a full season and his par-5 average of 4.78 stands second. He was the leader of a Bonnies team that earned four tournament victories, tied for third in school history while finishing the year with its best-ever GolfStat national ranking.
Anderson also ranks second in the program record books for low-36 hole total (137) and fourth for low-54 hole total (209) while his five career tournament victories stands tied for most all-time. His 166 career birdies are among the program top-10 and his career scoring average of 75.8 is seventh all-time in Bonnies history.
