Golf team gears up for season; weather has been difficult

This year’s golf season has been off to a rocky start due to the wet weather. The only meet they have attended this year is a junior varsity meet in Platte so they could all get in at least one competition before half the season was over. Due to Winter Storm Wesley, it looks like they could have problems getting onto another course for a while. All meets this week have been cancelled and according to Coach Armando Rodriguez, their best possible option will be the meet they have scheduled for Friday, April 26. 

Despite their inability to get outside even to practice, the golf team has been in good spirits about the season, as they all enjoy the sport and are just happy to be able to work on their game together with a coach. There is some equipment the team owns that is strictly for indoor use, so they have been able to work on their putting and driving with the utility curtain in Woonsocket’s gym as a back drop.
