Greencastle Coach Stephen Paquin Comments: The Tiger Cubs opened the 2019 season on a warm, sunny afternoon at Forest Park GC in Brazil playing in the Northview Invitational. Conner Taylor led the Cubs as medalist, shooting a very good score of 37-37=74, followed by Jaxon Parmley 38-40=78, Benton Parmley 43-43=86, Josh Bomgardner 48-50=98,and Tyler Rodgers 54-58=112. The Cubs have three experienced players back from last year and four relatively new players with one senior and three freshman filling out the team. This was a positive start to this season as all five players hits some very good shots throughout the round. For Josh and Tyler if was their first time playing in a tournament and playing 18 holes. Conner won the tournament on the first playoff hole against a player from Clay City. Jaxon finished in the top ten scorers and Benny improved his score from last year by three strokes. This team shows great promise for another successfull season; building on the success of previous teams. As they gain more experience, their scores will improve and will become one of the best teams in the area.
Next GC Match: Wed. April 10 against W. Vigo 4:45 at Tiger Pointe CCCloverdale Individual Scores: Wyatt Helterbrand 94, Michael Holsapple 89, Josh Allen 123, Cody Morris 114
Cloverdale Coach Doug Wokoun comments: Given the way things have transpired, it was a good day. Weather was great and Forest Park was better than we had hoped. It might have been the best weather we have ever had for the Early Bird.
Wyatt and Michael both had stretches of very good golf. They both had a few glitches, but I was pleased with what they did. Cody and Josh both had some struggles at different parts of the round, but also had some bright spots. We are a young team and very inexperienced, but there is certainly reason for optimism. Our guys got a chance to experience some things that they can definitely improve on. Many of our mistakes are easily correctable. It might take a little while to get things to a comfort level, but we will go right back to work.
Cloverdale travels to West Vigo on Monday.
