The Varsity Golf team has finished their 2021 Fall season with a 4-6 record, and Head Coach Michael Rogers had a lot to say about the season.
“I'm proud of the progress our team made as a whole. We were very young this year and did not have a lot of experience, but we have a lot of potential and we're starting to see that,” he summarized.
COVID has caused almost every sport worldwide to initiate some type of cancellation, postponement, or delay, and this golf season wasn’t much different.
“We had several players that had to quarantine once and that left us with only 6 players for a week of games," Rogers recalled. "The school closure on the 3rd caused us to miss one of our matches.”
A 4-6 season is not the Eagles' best, but Rogers says the team has made great strides giving their circumstances and have grown as a team. One athlete who's seen improvement is Junior Sam Fansler, who recently competed in the VHSL Class 6 State Golf Tournament, placing 30th out of 65.
“The tournament was very cool and a new type of pressure,” commented Fansler.
He has similar feelings toward this year's overall season.
“I know we can do better next season, but overall I think as a team we all grew to learn what to do and what not to do," Fansler reported.
These observations have caused team members to wonder about what next season may look like.
“I'm looking forward to trying to win the region and taking the team to states," Fansler shared.
