The JV boys’ golf team finished third in competition on April. 8. “I feel really good about our JV team right now,” coach Jeff Kragt said. The team finished the competition with 178 points.

“I feel like I could’ve done better,” sophomore Kai Hellberg said. “I was glad I was able to shoot a 44, i’ll have to continue to focusing on my putting and my approach shots.” The best score on the JV team was a 41 by junior Henry Green.

“They have been playing well at practices and I thought this week was going to be a breakthrough week for us in the match,” Kragt said. The varsity boys’ team took fourth place at the competition on April. 7 at the Langdon course. Chris Kappes shot the lowest round of 79 and the team ended with 321 strokes total. “The guys didn’t play quite as well as they had hoped, but we have some new things to focus on this week at practice to make sure we keep improving,” Kragt said.

The JV team will play at the Forest Hills golf course on April 14, leading up to the varsity competition at the same course on April. 15. “I want the guys to be comfortable on the course and build some confidence leading into the matches,” Kragt said. “The JV team will be a great building block for the varsity team in the coming years.”
