The fall golf season is nearing the halfway point. The team chose captains last week, with juniors Emily Adams and Maddy Schaefer earning the honors.

“We’re getting down to crunch time” said coach Howard Oliver. “We have our captains, we know who’s available the rest of the season. We have a foundation. Now it’s on me to keeping coaching and the players to keeping playing. We will continue to improve if we trust the process.”
