"I believe that this year we will make leagues and have a run at CCS,” said senior James Parden, who has played golf his entire high school career.

During practice, the team wants to stress the importance of focus throughout their matches in order to reduce strokes. The starting six have yet to be determined players are working hard to improve their scores.

“Golf is a tough sport,” Parden said. “But I think we will have a great season because we are adding key freshmen and the other players will have more experience playing in matches and will thus handle pressure situations more effectively.”
