After finishing ninth in three of their four tournaments this fall, the Foresters are back on the green for the spring season. Junior Ryan Boester said that confidence will be key to the golf team’s success this spring.
“We need to come into every match with confidence that we can win,” Boester said.
Junior Devin Dale is the only player out of the five on the team who has played for three years. This inexperience may not be such a weak point, as he said that “it gives us potential to be better than others think.”
Because there are only five players, the team is only allowed to discard one score, but Dale said that this will allow them to surprise the other teams. His goal for the team is to have five of them under eighty strokes.
“If you have five guys under eighty, you’re going to be competitive with other teams,” he said.
Sophomore Lance Hoch said that his goal for the team this season is to win conference, and to do so each person needs to improve their game.
“The team will be as good as we do individually,” Hoch said.
“It’s a short season, a little over a month long, so it’s hard to put in the work during the season,” Dale said. “We have to do it in the winter.”
Now that winter is over, the team will compete in the University of Saint Francis Spring Invitational at 12 p.m. Apr. 4 and 5.
