This year’s middle school golf team has a nice blend of experience, and young talent. The team features eight players, with four returners from last year’s squad. Returning for the Vikings are 8th graders, Cole B and George P. The returning 7th graders include Michael L and Liam B. All four of the players have shown a lot of improvement in their games.
“When you have returning golfers, the thing that we are looking for is improved consistency. These four are hard workers, who will set the tone for us throughout the season.”
Four new golfers will help bolster the squad’s talent and depth. The new faces include 8th grader, Aditya A, as well as two 7th graders, Callum L, and Dylan F. Rounding out the team is the lone 6th grader, Kris K.
“The four new players have shown a ton of potential, and will compete to earn one of our team spots at the HJPC Championship. The increased competition will only make our team better.”
The Vikings’ finished in 3rd place in their first tournament. Michael L led the way, shooting a 43 at Hermann Park Golf Course. Cole B opened his season with a 45. George P and Liam B also competed. The next tournament for the team is Wednesday, March 8th, and will feature the four new middle school golfers.
