Young golf team looks for improvement
Published: Thursday, August 22nd, 2013
The Custer High School golf team returns the bulk of the young team it fielded a year ago and will look to improve upon a 2012 season that saw two golfers qualify for the state meet.
Blake Martinz, a freshman, is the lone returning golfer who qualified for state and figures to be the top golfer for the team among the 13 who are out this year. He will have plenty of competition, however.
Among the other returning golfers who have varsity experience are fellow freshman Noah Zacher and Cole Conard, along with sophomore Lane Robb. Head coach Paul Kelley said eighth grader Reese Kelley, junior Adam Baker and senior Zach Hollick could also crack the varsity lineup when all is said and done.
“We’re hoping those three can help us fill out a team and make us more competitive,” Kelley said.
Kelley said since the team has to participate in meets right away, the focus of early practices has been simply getting the players on the course and letting them play.
