Starting the season with 1-3, the boys’ golf team has been having a tough time in tournaments but are slowly trying to increase their skills during practice.

“We have been getting better each time we play,” golf coach Mark Wright said. “We have some newer guys this year so they’re still learning and getting better.”

Although golf may seem like an individual sport, they work together as a team to encourage one another and help them to reach their full potential.

“Being around great teammates that I know really has my back throughout the season, [helps me grow as a better player],” senior Fletcher Dietrich said.

Dietrich and junior Thomas Bell both scored a 40-41 on April 7, which helped them beat their opponent, Troy, which was the team’s

first win.

“A highlight of the season I think was when we beat [Troy],” said Dietrich. “And beat the other two guys on the teams, we scored pretty good.”

Coach Wright plans on taking the things he’s learned this year, failures and wins, and instill them into upcoming players for the next season.

“I plan to continue to be a golf coach next year,” Wright said. “I think my students show a great work ethic, being able to be resilient; golf is a game of many failures, but you have to be able to stay at it.”
