Making an impact

The Wright State golf team recently won its sixth Horizon League title and the first since 2004. The last time the Raiders held the title, their most impactful player wasn’t even born.

The golf team signed James “JJ” Hill of Germantown in front of thousands of cheering Raider fans at halftime of the men’s basketball game on Jan. 24.

A few months prior to the signing, James joined Team Impact, an organization that places courageous kids with collegiate athletic teams.
