Kearney golfer Ryan Zech wins Kenneth Smith Award

KEARNEY, Missouri - Kearney High School senior Ryan Zech was awarded the annual Kenneth Smith Award Wednesday afternoon.

The award goes to the best high school golfer in the Kansas City area.

He's been nominated for the award twice before, and this year he finally got it.

"When I heard I won it was just a great honor. Being recognized for what I've been able to do in the community really means a lot to me and my family as well", said Zech.

Earlier this summer, Zech won the Missouri State High School Class 3A Championship.

He plans to attend the University of Missouri in the fall on a golf scholarship.
