“I am very proud of the golf team this year and the progress they have made throughout the season. We have been playing very well and feel like we are playing our best golf headed into the conference tournament and regionals,” Coach Gisinger stated.
He went on to say, “We are playing in a loaded regional, so we will need to continue to get better over the next week or so, to give us the best chance we can to move on as a team. We knew going into the season that we had 4 solid golfers in Braden Kauffman, Alex Kuhns, Aaron Seegmiller, and Kade Herschberger, but the development of Clay Seal becoming that 5th player who can shoot a really good score has made a huge difference for us as a team.”
This week they traveled to Sullivan on Monday, at home against Villa Grove on Tuesday, and the LPC meet starts on Saturday.
