The boy’s golf team has had a great season so far, managing to win most of their matches and place in the top ten at each of their tournaments. “There are twelve of us, six play at each tournament…I’m on Varsity,” says Freshman Dylan Barth. The Junior Varsity and Varsity team are evenly split with six on the Junior Varsity team and six on the Varsity team. “Half our varsity is freshman… it’s six and six (regarding the numbers of junior varsity and varsity),” Barth says.

The team practices twice a week at Brookfield Country Club,where they have access to a driving range and an 18 hole golf course. “Our coach is Jeffrey Pickard, he’s the art teacher here…We practice on Monday, Tuesday as a team, and then most of us practice everyday by ourselves. So during Monday and Tuesday we go hit balls at the range for maybe 20 minutes and then we go play like, nine holes,” Barth says. Golf is a spring sport, so it runs throughout the second semester. Most will start in January or February and end close to the last few weeks of school. “We started our season late January and so we’ve played in maybe four tournaments and five matches.”

“We played in two tournaments this week…we have State close to the first day of finals…We have an area the week of EOCs… they’re letting, I think, five teams from our region go to State. So that’s when we have to qualify,” Barth says. The golf team travels to their tournaments and matches, which usually happen during the week. On these days, the team leaves class early to compete.“For the ones during the week it’s one day, and then I think States is our only 2 day tournament,” Barth says.
