Colton Cavender, a former standout at All Saints Episcopal School, has signed a letter of commitment to join the TCU golf program, Eddie Francis, All Saints athletic director, announced.

Cavender, son of Jacqueline and Clay Cavender, is a 2019 graduate of All Saints.

“We are very proud of Colton for this amazing accomplishment,” Francis said. “He is an incredible student-athlete but an even better person. We know he will be an excellent addition to the TCU campus and an impact player for the Horn Frog Golf Program.”

While at All Saints, Cavender participated in football, golf and track.

He received numerous golf accolades during his All Saints career including: first-team all-district three years, first-team all-region three years, all-state three years and academic all state two years. He was also the 2019 district champion.

During the summer Cavender won the Men’s Club Golf Championship at Willow Brook Country Club when he drained a five-footer on the 54th hole to beat former Horned Frog golfer Aaron Hickman by a stroke.

Cavender recently shot a 69 in a qualifying tournament for the TCU team.

The Horned Frogs are scheduled to compete in the Nike Collegiate Invitational beginning Sunday at Pumpkin Ridge Golf Club in North Plains, Oregon. The tourney continues through Tuesday.

The Big 12 Match Play Tournament is scheduled for Oct. 11-13 at The Clubs at Houston Oaks in Hockley.
