Less than a month until spring sports start tryouts, the boys’ golf team is very optimistic for a successful season. Even after losing four seniors from the team last year, the group is excited about new golfers trying out, as well as returning athletes.

Looking back at last season, the 2016 season was considered to be the best chance to win a conference title having multiple athletes qualify through districts, and while the team did indeed win the conference tournament, it was not enough for last year’s team to claim the overall conference title.

A tough district assignment and a low cut score left many Pattonville golfers unable to advance for sectionals.

Now, a month out of from the season, Pattonville golfers look to prove themselves this season especially senior Micah Giancola.

“Winning conference is nothing too far out of the way,” Giancola said. “We have many good golfers returning that are going to work hard to try and lead the team to a couple matches and hopefully go far in districts.”

Senior Caleb Gardner has hight expectations for this upcoming season.

“With this being my last year on the golf team, I really want to come out this spring and play a vital part in our chance to win conference,” Gardner said. “With our roster that we plan to have this season, our chance is looking pretty good.”
