Spring update: boys’ golf

Posted: April 16, 2018

“I’m excited to compete for my last season of high school golf with some good friends I have made,” said senior Carter Bell, who will be the only captain for the boys’ golf team this season.

Bell commented on the numbers this year saying, “This year will be tough due to the lack of kids coming out, but I feel as though the team will be able to compete.”

The coaches for the boys’ golf team are Robb Nelson, who coaches varsity, and Aaron Shafranski, who coaches junior varsity.

Like past seasons the team will continue to practice at Hiawatha Golf Course, but they will also be moving around this year.

The boys’ golf team will have the challenge of numbers for this season, but Nelson isn’t worried.

“We have a great core of golfers on our varsity and junior varsity teams, some very hard workers getting better every day. Our numbers for this upcoming season are slightly down from the past few seasons but only by a few,” he said.

“I look forward to coaching these young athletes and helping them improve throughout the season,” says Nelson. “Watching how they improve throughout their high school years, that is very rewarding for me. Watching them compete and learn the game is fun.”
