Golfers sharpen for season ahead
Neal Brubaker, Jake Smucker, and Shane Goerzen return for another season with the Goessel High School Bluebirds golf team. The three participated last year at the state golf meet where the Bluebirds finished eighth as a team.
Nineteen students have shown interest in trying to break into the varsity squad for this season and Coach Justin Coup will have to sort the progress of some of his young players.
Brubaker tied for 37th place at the state golf meet last year, with Smucker two strokes behind. Both golfers will be counted on for some senior leadership this year.
As a freshman last year, Shane Goerzen blossomed during the season, earning a spot on the varsity team.
The team’s first competition will be 1 p.m. April 5 at Herington.
