 Golf season is in full swing as players strive to make varsity and improve their high score. As players improve and change, their goals for the season also change as players near the end of their golf season.

“My goals for the rest of the season are to do the best that I can in every match,” senior Justin Jachetta-Whitmire said

 “I made it to sectionals last year, but I would like to go to state this year,” senior Jamie Jimenez said.

  “My goal is to see each golfer become a better golfer over the course of the season, I enjoy their successes and work to try to help them fix their areas that they struggle in. The players and team goals are centered around being successful in postseason play: districts, sectionals, and hopefully a state run,” coach Bob Foster said

  The varsity players had a match at Home on April 5.

Senior Kyle Nevius scored a 48 and junior Madi Grobe scored a 56.

  To help improve their scores and work on their goals players practice every day after school.

  “During practice we normally hit the driving range and we practice at Shawnee Bend golf course. My favorite thing about practice is to hang out with everyone,” freshman Emily Engebretsen said.

  Engebretsen scored a 70 on the match at home on the fifth.

  Warsaw golfers have had 11 games so far and are aiming for good matches in upcoming district and sectional play.

  “We are currently trying to fill gaps in individual players’ games to provide them options in case they struggle with a club that usually works for them. We are also trying to play as many holes per day as we can and make the conditions resemble the conditions of the postseason courses.  The varsity also competes in several 18-hole tournaments, which also helps them prepare for the lengthy district and sectional matches.” Foster said.

  The golf team will play at the Butler Tournament on April 29.
