Aside from athletics, Gorbahn has acted in many school plays.
The son of Dana and Shannon Gorbahn, Kaleb plans to study business at Holy Cross.
"Kaleb continues our tradition of great Canadian athletes playing for Holy Cross," Mannen stated. "He is an exciting and dynamic player that can score low at any given tournament. "He has a great swing with the potential to do great things."
Joey Medora joins the Saints from Bishop, California where he's currently in his fourth season as a member of the golf team at Bishop Union High School. Medora played two summers in the Northern Nevada Junior Golf Association (NNJGA) where he won three events.
