Spring Sports Preview: Golf

            The boys and girls golf teams carry their hopes of improving and advancing in the GMCs into their upcoming season. Last season, the girls’ golf team went 4-6, which matched the program’s best record in ten years, winning against Sayreville, Edison, New Brunswick, and Mother Seton. Although the boys’ team didn’t do as well as they hoped, they plan to improve and hopefully win more matches. 

            This year, both teams have lost valuable senior players from last year’s team, like Kristen Lee and Connor Hobson, but the expectations are still high. “We lost most of our seniors this year, and the team is looking pretty young, but I am sure the team will work hard at practice to succeed in the matches,” junior Brian Scarpa said. 

            Going into the 2022-2023 season, the girls hope to see improvement. “We want to try and gain more wins than we did last year as well as rank higher in GMCs,” said returning varsity golfer, Sriya Nauduri, who shot a 39 to place second against in the win over Edison. 

            Although the boys had a rough season last year, they have worked to improve their game. “Some things we can improve on would definitely be getting lower scores and working on our short game,” Scarpa said. 

            An important deciding factor for both teams is the amount of practice they put in. “The team can improve its communication,” returning varsity golfer Bridget Lutz said. By improving their communication, the team will be able to better understand their opponents.

            The returning members of the teams are excited for the new season and facing the new competition. “I am looking forward to the upcoming season and getting to compete against other teams,” Lutz said.
