The Golf Team began practice in early February at Pine Creek Golf Course, formally White Pines Country Club. The team has enjoyed working and getting to know each other.
Two players have returned from last year’s team. Senior and team captain Marcus Kirschner and freshman Kevin Martinez. Both are skilled golfers and are in the top three of our six competitor line-up. Sam Firebaugh, a junior, is also a skilled golfer and in the top three of our line-up.
The remaining team members are newcomers to the game and have grown in their skill set throughout the first two months of the season. Jacob Cecere, Charlie Pyles, and Malte Dassler have held onto the four through six positions. John Simmons, Sam Moniz, Cadence Tarbox, Connor Ventura, and Aaron Taylor round out the roster and are working hard to earn their way up.
The team has competed well in its first two matches. On March 23 they traveled to Wyboo Golf Course in Manning , S.C. and tied for third place with a score of 182 in a five team match. Then, at Pine Creek on April 1, the team hosted McBee and won decisively despite strong winds 197 - 231. CMA Golf has three more matches scheduled in April and one in May to conclude the season.
The team would like to thank Marcus Kirschner’s grandparents Richard and Gunnel Greenahagen and Joan Kirschner for donating our team golf shirts for the season.
