Golf, 7-7, developed its players while finishing 10th in the State Tournament.
This year, there were many new players on the team, according to coach Bob MacDougal.
“I am very pleased with the improvement of the newer players,” he said. “They are all very good golfers, but it took some time for them to get accustomed to the pressure of playing in competitive matches.”
Next year, the team hopes to work on its consistency, according to MacDougal.
Sophomore Charlie Goldberg, a captain with senior Jeff Howard and junior Brendan Ryan, said that goals for next season are to continue this year’s intensity and to become more accustomed to competitive golf.
“I hope that everyone on the golf team can play in a tournament or two before the season ends to really prepare ourselves for competitive golf,” he said.
Goldberg was named a Bay State Conference all-star.
Next year’s captains are to be decided.
