Joseph Contreras, a senior at Bonsall High School, signed with Providence Christian College Jan. 9 in the BHS forum. The signing accompanied a partial athletic and merit golf scholarship worth $15,000. Josh Ault, the head mens’ and womens’ golf coach for Providence, offered Contreras the opportunity and oversaw the signing.

“When I find a guy like Joe, immediately I recognize that he’s got character and he is what we want in our culture, our program, so it’s really easy to give a guy like that an opportunity, ‘cause I think he’s earned it,” Ault said.

Friends and family celebrated with Contreras and the first college scholarship given to a BHS athlete.

“I’m super proud of Joe. He’s worked very hard the past three seasons we’ve had and the four years he’s been here. I’ve watched him grow into a solid player, a great student and a great person, so I’m really proud of what he’s done and I’m excited for what he’s gonna do,” Eddie Van Hoosear, Bonsall High golf coach, said.

Contreras, Ault and his family posed for pictures, before cutting into a celebratory cake.

“Thank you everybody for being here to share this with me. Thank you to Mr. V for being my golf coach for 3-4 years. Thank you mom for being there with me every step of the way,” Contreras said. “I’m super excited for college. It’s gonna be cool.”
