The boys golf team is wrapping up their season and saying goodbye to this year’s graduating seniors. 

“My favorite memory was probably the whole junior varsity team placing my sophomore year at conferences,” senior Ethan Beckermann said.

Players said golf is enjoyable for many for several reasons: it is versatile, offers a chance to connect with others and physically demanding but still relaxing. 

“What I am probably going to miss the most is just being able to go out with everybody on the team and practicing and having a good time after school,” Beckermann said.

Coach Bill Schoonover has been coached the team for seven years and describes the experience as being fantastic.

“The seniors have provided some outstanding leadership. We had a lot of members on the team this year who were new to golf and the seniors did a good job of stepping up and making the new guys feel comfortable and helping them along the way to achieve their goals,” Schoonover said.

The seniors on the boys golf team include Ethan Beckermann, Owen Blevins, Logan Brown, Jack Browning, Michael Mishkot, and Hunter Niles. 

According to, golf was invented in 1457 in Scotland. Golf is a club and ball sport in which players use various clubs to hit balls into a series of holes on a course in as few strokes as possible.
